Sliding Scale Information

Sliding Scale Prices

The sliding scale tier you fall within is based on either your life circumstances or your income. Please feel free to choose the tier that you identify most with. The naturopathic doctors and/or receptionists will never ask you to provide proof.

Tier 1

Circumstances: I may worry about meeting my basic needs, but regularly achieve them. I have some debt but it does not prohibit attainment of basic needs. I am employed at a stable job. I rent stable housing. I have access to some savings and have some expendable income. I am able to buy some new items and I thrift others.

Annual income: $35,001-50,000
Fee: Patient receives a 25% discount off all appointment prices. Patient pays full price for products.

Tier 2

Circumstances: I worry about meeting my basic needs, but still regularly achieve them. I have some debt but it does not prohibit attainment of basic needs. I am employed. I rent relatively stable housing. I do not have access to significant financial savings or expendable income. I rarely buy new items because I am unable to afford them.

Annual income: $20,001-$35,000

Tier 3

Circumstances: I frequently worry about meeting basic needs and don’t always achieve them. I have debt and it sometimes prohibits me from meeting my basic needs. I have no access to savings. I am unemployed or underemployed. I rent unstable housing, or am currently seeking housing.

How to Book

Sliding scale appointments can only be booked over phone/email. Please reference your tier when booking an appointment. If we no longer have appointments left for that month you will be added to a waiting list.

The framework for our sliding scale program is adapted from Corpus Ritual and Spirited Roots.

Land Acknowledgement

Juniper Naturopathic Clinic acknowledges that we are operating this business on Treaty 8 land. This land is the traditional territory, gathering place, and meeting grounds of the Cree, Dene, Dane-zaa, and Métis. We acknowledge that we are settlers on this land and we deeply respect the courage and strength of Indigenous peoples.

We would like to honour the role Indigenous people have taken on for thousands of years as environmental stewards and we would like to show the same respect for the environment. We acknowledge that much of Naturopathic Medicine’s understanding of herbal medicine and other treatments is owed to the knowledge and wisdom of Indigenous peoples.

We are grateful for the opportunity to practice medicine, learn, and work on this land.
