Fees apply to:
- all applications filed under the Labour Relations Code (the Code)
- initial responses to applications
- mediation services
Fees don't apply to:
- an applicant's final reply submission
- further submissions requested by the Board
- a party not filing a response

You have to pay the application fee for each Section of the Code you are applying under. For example, if you are applying for both a successorship declaration (Section 35) and a common employer declaration (Section 38), the Board considers them two applications even when they are filed in a single document.
Fees for mediation services
The daily rate for using a mediator's services is $250 per party.

- debit card,
