If you withdraw from the program for any reason before it starts, you have the option of transferring your deposit and any additional amount you have paid, to another program. If you do not choose to do this, we will send you a $150 deposit refund voucher. This voucher can be redeemed up to three years from the date of issue and can be given to another person to use.  Deposit transfers and vouchers can only be used one time, they will not be re-issued. Any payments made over and above the $150 deposit amount will be refunded using the original payment method. If The Haven cancels a program, a full refund will be given using the original payment method. Read our refund policy in full.


The Haven is a federally registered educational charity in Canada (89280-6407 RR0001). Your tuition may be tax deductable. In January of each year The Haven issues a T2202A (an income tax receipt for tuition tax credits) to any person that has attended a program in the previous calendar year. The Haven does not determine if you are eligible to claim the tuition on your tax return, that is up to you. 

The determining factors for eligibility are:

  • The program develops or improves skills in an occupation.
  • The participant must be 16 years or older. 

T2202As will only be issued in the name of the person that attended the program.
