Canada, Eh!!
If pro having problem then doubt can suggest anything better however try...

Make sure plunger technique correct... seal one side of sink and after using plunger quickly unsuction from sink.

If have space try pouring water from few feet away from sink... getting gravity to help a bit.

2017 to 2018: BOC raised rates 5 times and MCAP raised its prime next day each time.
2020: BOC dropped rates 3 times and MCAP waited to drop its prime to include all 3 drops.

I was in the same situation, had a 25' auger machine and it didn't help. Had to open the wall around 25' from the sink and try again, then it unclogged.

Hope you haven't been dumping rice, pasta and coffee grounds in addition to fats, among other things down the sink.
