A note on privacy

While service agreements are public documents, some communities prefer not to have their agreements posted online. If you have an agreement that you'd like us to remove, please contact us.

A note on pricing

The pricing for services in these agreements should not be used as a way to leverage more favourable pricing for particular situations. They are only a guide as pricing varies across the country and can be affected by many factors.
