It probably is't cheap to get it restored and it will be messy(lots of dust) if they have to sand it down, Why not go and get some laminate flooring for a decent price, you can just lay it over top of the existing floor.

Higgins out of Peterborough are very good. They do cover the GTA.

I used them last year to refinish an oak floor after having had them referred by a few people, and they did an excellent job. The floor came up looking like new.

Sanding and restaining will depend on how much square footage you have.
Look up floor refinishing in the Yellow Pages for quotes.
I'm sure a place in Peterborough is going to charge mileage and will be more expensive than someone based in the GTA.
They can also stain and leave the wood natural and put a protective finish over top that will be quicker and cost less than staining.

Paint remover or sand it.
Would that not remove the parquet floor stain also tho? which would require me to re-stain the floor?

If you use paint remover, it will be a mystery what will be under the paint. If it's ugly or beat up underneath the paint, you'll be compelled to sand and stain it anyways.
