Our Rates

Facilities & Services Charge Out Rates

The Caretaking Services Department recovers costs of all additional Fee for Services through an hourly charge to the requesting faculty/department. The following hourly rates have been established for caretaking services for current fiscal year:

Custodial Services during normal operating hours $38.50/hour
Custodial Services after hours & on Saturdays $51.00/hour
Custodial Services on Sundays & Stat Holidays $64.00/hour

These hourly rates represent wages, benefits and overhead costs incurred by Caretaking Services and are adjusted as required to reflect changes in the internal costs for the delivery of services.

Overtime rates apply to any services provided outside a normal Caretaking Department defined shift or on an emergency basis after regular shift hours.  Efforts are made to notify the client in advance of emergency overtime requirements.

Should the function being covered by Caretaking Services necessitate the supply of an extraordinary amount of washroom consumables, they will be charged back to the Service Order.
