Various venues have different definitions of the off season.  Some it’s just Jan & Feb.  Others it’s November through March or November through April.  May through October tend to be high season.

What style of wedding are you thinking of and how big?  I researched venues in the area previously and would be happy to share any that may work for you.

Actually winter is not off season. I met a wedding planner when we went for dinner after my proposal.  I said I was torn between autumn in Ontario or winter.  She told me to pick the autumn because December you awe competing with big corporate dollars booking venues fochromoly christmas events.  

When I was pricing it out October-March were good all except December. 

Oh and I feel your pain. I live in BC now but mum is in Ontario.

@the_future_mrs:  

Omg. You are totally me.  We expected 40-50 people and wanted to spend 10k.  Ended up at 90 people and 25k.  Casa Loma is crazy expensive.  Try the old mill or the glen erin inn. That’s where we ended up. The glen erin has an off season rate of $99 per person including open bar.

@MrsTimmy:  i was just going to point that out too.

off season in ontario is usually jan-feb/march.  it depends on the venue.  i found that a lot of them would have discounts during those months (ex. rental fee waived, discounted packages, etc).

november and december are xmas party months.  seldom will you find a deal at a regular hall or hotel type of venue.  however, golf courses that don’t cater to a lot of xmas parties may have discounts at this time.

@the_future_mrs:  I dont.  We have been there a number of times just before a wedding to check it out.  It’s pretty nice.  We are actually getting married at the church around the corner a big old stone church.  The inn has a great history.  They are also on Facebook. And if you look up Dave Merrow photographer he has done a bunch there.   He isn’t our photographer but I think he has some stuff on his website.

Oh another great place but a little more money was the music room at hart house.  But I found it better to pick a place that does it all.  I didn’t want to deal with caterers and rentals from across the country.

Is your style modern?  Vintage?  Black tie could apply to either, so just wanted to check before making suggestions.
