Upon registration you may choose to pay in full or to pay in installments. If paying in installments, a non-refundable deposit of $131.25 is required with your registration, a second payment of $225 will be required at 32 weeks, and the remainder of $326.25 must be paid by 37 weeks. You can access your online account and make payments anytime you’d like, in any amount you’d like. Please email if you need a customized payment plan.
Fees can be paid online with credit card, by e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org, or in person with cash, cheque, or credit card. If choosing to pay by installments by cheque, your deposit and two post-dated cheques must be provided upon registration. You must contact us ahead of time to set-up a time to drop off payment in-person as we don’t have full time reception.
