Fees

At the Centre for Change, fees vary depending on the clinician that you decide to work with and can range from $130 to $220. Payment is due at the time of the session and clients are welcome to pay via credit card, e-transfer, cheque or cash. We do not currently have the capacity for debit cards.

Additional costs apply if you require completion of forms, letters or reports. We bill per 15-minute increments based on the hourly fee of your clinician.

Many individuals have extended health-care coverage through their work that will pay all; or a portion of the costs, of seeing a registered psychologist. We provide receipts which can be used for this purpose.

The following are some of the plans that we work regularly with:

  • Public Service Health Care Plan (PSHCP, formerly GSMIP)
  • Blue Cross
  • Department of National Defense
  • Veterans Affairs Canada
  • Manulife
  • Sunlife
  • Greatwest Life

Late Cancellations & No-shows

Your appointment time is reserved for you and this means we are unable to see anyone else during that time. A $75.00 late cancellation fee will be applied if you cancel your appointment with less than 48 hours’ notice or fail to keep your appointment. Clients whose treatment is being paid for by a third party (WSIB, RCMP, etc.) are responsible for this fee as this is not covered by third parties. If you are ill or there is poor weather this policy does not apply.
