Add $30 for each additional instructor required.

Examples:

  • A Lake Intro Skills Tandem run in Alberta  (1:10) with 15 participants requires two instructors. The ratio would therefore be increased to 2:20 (2 x 1:10) and the course fee would therefore be 2 x $30 = $60 + $3 GST = $63.
  • A Sea Kayaking Level-1 Skills run in Nova Scotia (1:6) with eight participants requires either two instructors (or one instructor + one apprentice).  For two instructors, ratio is increased to 2:12 (2 x 1:6) course fee would therefore be 2 x $30 = $60 + $9 HST = $69.
