A: Our services and rates differ by Province and by City, so select the city that applies to you to confirm pricing for your COVID-19 testing needs.

This charge will be administered for Late Cancellations (within the 24-hour window before the scheduled appointment), No-Shows, or any last-minute changes to your appointment (rescheduling within 24 hours before your appointment).
