- Pre-set rates for canoeing assume that the canoes are picked up at the Club's canoe-storage location after starting from the Club's regular meeting location.
- As defined in the bylaws, carpool rates are a fixed percentage of the Government of Canada reimbursement rates for Ontario. The OOC rates are based on the 1 October 2019 government rates.
- This Excel spreadsheet is used to calculate the rates. There is one tab for each time the rates are set (usually annually).
