Canon DSL Canon Repair

My canon Rebel T2 camera has froze, Henry's in Toronto looked at it and told me $250.00 to open it up.
Can anyone advise if there is a less expensive place I could take my camera to,

thank you

They sell for under $100 on Amazon.

Is that a T2 as in the film camera or did you mean a T2i? Either way if it were me I'd probably just buy a new camera I doubt it's worth fixing.

Canon charges flat fee for camera repairs. You'll have to pay around $220 either way. If you can find one cheaper, go for it. Then you can sell yours for parts :)

Don't trust Canon to repair your camera. I had the misfortune of having to deal with them once, and not only did they fail to repair my camera, they kept the "repair" fee too. They offered me the chance to buy a refurb instead. No thanks.

I wish I could trust repair men, but after multiple bad experiences, no positive ones, any repairs are now done my me. If I can't fix something (usually because I can't get a replacement part) it's time to find a deal on a replacement.
12 months for condemning rape. 6 months for calling violent thugs "nasty". WTH? Is this IS?

Canon Canada outsources repair work to Sun Camera. Might as well go there directly, but for a Canon T2, I'd recommend just picking up another DSLR. Entry level ones are pretty much the cost of the repair.

Only Canon USA actually does their own repair work.

Thanks everyone, I will possibly check into purchasing a new one it is the T2I.
