Booking Guidelines

Important Guidelines for Your Booking

Hey – thanks for booking our space! Here are some important things for you to know.

Space Policies

Please be sure to read our full rental policies.

On-site Equipment

Flip charts and markers are already located in your meeting room.

Most meeting rooms have a mounted projector, screen, or a TV which can be connected directly to your device via HDMI, USB-C (new standard), or Mini Display Port (older Mac port). Please check when making your booking to ensure your room has the equipment you need.

After Hours Access 

For bookings at CSI Spadina or CSI Annex you will receive an access code via email for each booking which will grant you entry to the building via a keypad at the entrance. Please keep this code handy for your booking, and share it in advance with any guests attending the meeting. For security reasons, NEVER post your code at the entrance. The code will activate 30 minutes prior to your booking and expire at the end of your booking.

There is a charge of $50+ in the case that a room is left unclean or damaged.

Invoicing

Meeting Room Invoices will be generated and charged to the billing information on your account on the first business day of the month, for all bookings from the previous month.

If you don’t already have payment information saved on your account, you will be required to enter in payment info at the time of booking.

For direct online bookings we accept all major credit cards as well as VISA debit and Mastercard debit; we do not accept Interac debit at this time. If you need to make a booking with an alternative method of payment, or if you require any assistance with bookings please contact events[at]socialinnovation.ca

CANCELLATION POLICY

All Meeting Room cancellations must be made at least 24 hours before your booking, or you will be responsible for the full cost of the booking.

If you need to modify your booking, you can adjust it directly online as long as you do so 24 hours before the start of your booking. In either case, you will want to first secure any new meeting room space or time required immediately on the booking portal, and you will then need to get in touch with our Meeting Room & Events team (events[at]socialinnovation.ca) to confirm the move so that the invoicing can be updated manually on the backend. In these cases, you will be waived for the cost of the lower cost room to ensure you are not double-paying.
