How much does a locksmith cost in Canada?

Locksmith Cost

The Locksmith Cost in each Canadian city is based on a trip/call-out charge, job price quotes, hourly rates, and additional hardware required to complete a job. These numbers are further based on how competitive the market in each city is.

Average Locksmith Cost – Trip or Call Out Fees by Cities:

  • Locksmith Trip fees can range from $29 to $250
  • Toronto – $45 | after hours – $65
  • Vancouver – $70 | after hours – $180
  • Montreal – $35 | after hours – $85
  • Ottawa – $45 | after hours – $125
  • Winnipeg – $55 | after hours – $110
  • Calgary – $70 | after hours – $180

TIP: Avoid “locksmith” companies that offer $10 or $15 call-out charges. You will regret the call when the final bloated bill and the overall workmanship are presented. Check to make sure the locksmith is properly licenced – a provincial picture ID showing an individual licence as a Locksmith under the Security Services and Investigators Act.

Typical Locksmith Cost

On average, a locksmith may charge the following fees for these services:

  • Locked out – unlock house & open door to gain entry – $125 to $250. There are various types of opening techniques, so if someone is locked out there are different ways to get them in.
  • Mortice cylinder lock replacement – $150 to $320. This price is dependent on the size and the level of security of the locks – high-security locks will be the safest and more expensive.
  • Replacement of all house locks – $125 to $400. There’s a lot of variance for this service since the cost is largely dependent on the type and number of locks, as well as the number of hours the locksmith must spend to complete the job.
  • Key extraction- $95 to $180. This price is dependent on whether the locksmith can extract the broken key with no damage to the cylinder.
  • Opening a mortice lock/rim lock – $125 to $250. Both lock types involve comparable fees, and sometimes the locksmith will have to drill the lock and then a lock replacement is needed.
  • Emergency car opening – $95 to $185. The locksmith will charge you based on the time of the service and also the type of car.

** Keep in mind that all of the above prices do not include the cost of the service fee, which could be:

  • $29 to $85 for the normal rate, and $65 to $125 for after-hours
