    Default HST

    The following is from a brochure about the admission rate:

    Single Annual Membership only $35
    (rates plus HST)
    Family Annual Membership only $50
    (covers two adults and their dependant children)


    What does "HST" mean in this context?

    Thanks

    It could mean some sort of tax, but it's difficult to know without further information.

    If the document you got this from is Canadian, then I would guess it's "Harmonized Sales Tax". I simply Googled HST and that was the first hit. It would have been quicker for you to do that than to ask us.
