Cancellation Policy 

Due to the popularity and capacity of these classes, we have a very strict cancellation policy. All cancellations must be made before noon on the Wednesday prior to the workshop date. There is a $20 fee that will be applied if you are absent without notifying us by the deadline (see below for specific dates). To cancel, please call our Box Office at 604.739.0559.

Why the cancellation fee?

The $20 fee will be directed to the Education Bursary. We want to continue offering this training for free, and to do this we must ensure that the classes will be filled. When someone neglects to notify us that they can’t make it, they are in effect holding the spot from another person and altering the experience of those that do show up. In the spirit of honoring the time of the faculty and the participants, we have put this policy into place. If you cancel by the deadline (see below), you will not be charged.
