Rates

3-Hour Rates

Rates are those in place at the time of the booking (and confirmed by me in writing after the booking is made) and will not be increased retroactively.  However, rates do increase from time to time and will be posted here.

Current half-day rates are set out below:

Number of Parties Maximum Fee
2 $1,600 plus HST
3 $1,800 plus HST
4 $2,000 plus HST
5 $2,200 plus HST
  6+ $2,400 plus HST

Full-Day Rates

Current full-day rates are as follows:

Number of Parties Maximum Fee
2 $3,000 plus HST
3 $3,300 plus HST
4 $3,600 plus HST
5 $3,900 plus HST
  6+ $4,200 plus HST

Rates for Additional Hours

Rates for additional hours will remain at a range of $400 to $600 (plus HST), depending on the number of parties.

Out-of-Town Appointments

When I do out-of-town half-day appointments, I won’t be able to get back to the GTA in time for a second appointment.  I therefore charge a premium; however, if a second half-day booking is made in the same general location, the premium vanishes.

I will still need to charge for travel time and mileage (and, depending on where it is, for air travel and accommodation).  I charge travel time at $150.00/hr and mileage at 55¢ per km, door-to-door.

Cancellation Fee Schedule*

Amount of Notice Amount of Fee
More than 30 days: No fee
Between 15 and 30 days: 50% fee + HST
Fewer than 15 days:  Full fee + HST

* Please note that I must also charge for related expenses that have already been incurred.  For instance, for a last-minute cancellation, I will have been charged for the room and may also have incurred travel expenses.
