Operation Groundswell’s programs are priced in Canadian dollars for all Canadian citizens and U.S. dollars for all other nationalities. Fees and contributions are collected in three easy installments, and have been developed in consultation with the Travel Industry Council of Ontario to protect you as a consumer and ensure that our programs are financially accessible.
The first installment is a non-refundable Universal Deposit, which secures your place on a program and is used to begin making commitments on your behalf. You can use it towards any OG program for two years from the date of receipt.
The second installment is a Membership Fee, which is used to support our organization as we prepare for your program and mobilize the greater OG community that you’ll soon be a part of! The Membership Fee also includes a variable Community Contribution which goes to support our local partners on the ground.
The third and final installment is a Program Fee which covers the rest of your on-the-ground costs, and is held in trust for that purpose. Every Program Fee also includes an Environmental Contribution which goes to ensure that your adventure is completely carbon neutral.
