Permit fees and purchased insurance are due at the end of the month in which the permit is approved. All other fees (rental and custodial) are due at the end of each month that the fee is incurred.

Custodial fees will include two and half hours in addition to the permit time to account for opening and closing procedures. When there are multiple permits during the same time, these fees will be shared between the permit.

Rental charges, which are reviewed annually, are subject to HST and are calculated as follows;
Permit Application Fee + Rental Fees + Custodial Fees (if applicable.)

Note: The Ministry of Education provides school boards with an annual Community Use of Schools grant which boards use to subsidize rental charges for not-for-profit organizations. While this program is in effect, Non-Profit Youth & Other (Type 1-A), Non-Profit Non-Youth (Type 1-B), and Non-Profit Other (Type 2) are eligible for subsidized rental rates; should this program end regular non-subsidized rates apply. To be eligible to be classified in a specific category documentation must be provided. Please refer to Availability & Priority of Use.
