Statement of Responsibility

Bookings, Payment and Damage Deposits.

A deposit of 25% is required at the time of booking with the balance due prior to trip departure. Full refunds will be provided if written notice of cancellation is given at least 60 days prior to departure.

Deposits from cancellations made at least 10 days in advance of the trip departure will be applied as credit for future trips or services provided they are used before the end of the next paddling season. Notice of less than 10 days, deposit MAY be subject to forfeiture.

Payment must be made in full prior to trip departure.  We accept cash, personal cheques, travellers cheques, Visa and Mastercard.

A  damage deposit is required for rental equipment and must be secured with a  credit card -Visa or Mastercard. It is the renter’s responsibility to pay for any repairs or replacement of equipment on damage due to carelessness, loss or rough use.  . Normal wear and tear will not apply.

Goldseekers Canoe Outfitting and Wilderness Expeditions will not assume any responsibility for damage or loss to personal items. This includes damage to personal canoes during transportation or trip delay due to conditions beyond our control.


We will require signed liability waivers from each member of any group before departing our base of operations.  Include with your waiver will be your float plan…..just in case.

One waiver we will not expect you to sign is a media waiver.  All too often you read consistently glowing online reviews of outfitters.  In my experience both as a tripper and an avid traveller, these are often (but not always) the result of a crafted  and controlled media image which only allows positive reviews and threatens legal action against either the negative poster or the review host.  If we’ve provided less than satisfactory service we want to know about it and learn from it so that it doesn’t happen again.

Tax Outline

Taxes are a fact of life in Canada.

  • Federal Taxes -There is a 13% Harmonized Sales Tax (federal and provincial) on everything but groceries. If you are a Non-Resident of Canada you can obtain a rebate of a portion of this tax on your accommodations and hard goods purchased only. The rebate does not apply to services such as shuttles, guides and equipment rentals.
