TUITION AND FEES
Please specify who will be sharing a room with you. If you are applying on your own, then someone of the same sex will be placed with you. The shared bedrooms hold 2-3 people. There are also single occupant rooms available, with either a twin bed or a king bed. The single twin bedrooms are usually booked first. Please note that applicants are not in competition with each other, and if a suitable candidate applies than he/she will be accepted before the application due date.
Travel and ferry costs are not included and booking times are at your own discretion. 13% tax will be added (HST #731121729 RT0001). All tuition fees are due upon your acceptance into the workshop. Tuition cannot be refunded due to your inability to attend, but can be transferred to another eligible candidate. If a suitable participant cannot be found then you can use 20% of the amount you paid towards a future retreat or residency. Refunds will only be given if the workshop you enrolled in is cancelled. E-transfer is our preferred form of payment. Personal cheques are also acceptable. If you pay by credit card or Paypal, the processing fees charged by these companies will be added to the amount you owe.
