Note: It may take up to three months for us to receive permission for on-going rentals. Fees are negotiable.If both the lower and main parish halls are required, a 10% discount will be given on each hall rental. Permission from the Church Executive Committee and the Diocese of Toronto is required for groups who wish to rent our halls on an ongoing basis. 

Insurance Fee

All events must be insured.  If a group renting the hall does not have their own insurance, then insurance must be taken out through the Anglican Diocese Insurer, AON. More information about the online application is available from the Church Office.

Insurance rates are based on a sliding scale depending on the nature of the event, the ages of those attending and whether alcohol will be served. Insurance arrangements must be completed and submitted to the church office two weeks before the date of an event.

If a group renting the hall has their own organizational insurance, a copy must be supplied to the church office naming the Incumbent and Churchwardens of St. Paul’s Anglican Church and the Incorporated Synod of the Diocese of Toronto as parties insured on the event date.

Liquor Permits
Please visit the Special Occasion Permit section of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario’s website for information about liquor permits and to download the application form for Special Occasion Permits. This permit must be displayed behind the bar in the hall during the function.

Bartenders
The renter must purchase insurance from the church’s insurance company, indicating that alcohol will be served at the event. With the purchase of this insurance, the church is absolved from any liability and the renter assumes total liability for any accident or injury resulting from the actions of someone who is above the legal alcohol limit.

We strongly recommend that only bartenders with SMARTSERVE accreditation be used. SMARTSERVE bartenders are available from Georgian College by calling 728-1968 ext. 5280. Bartenders with SMARTSERVE have the right to refuse drinks or to call police if problems arise. To protect your liability and the health and safety of your guests, only SMARTSERVE bartenders are to serve alcohol at the event.

If there are more than 100 guests, two bartenders are required.
The last call for drinks is 11:30 pm. The bar will close at midnight.
