The Professional Organizers in Canada (POC), a nationwide association representing all the professional organizers in Canada, had more than 545 members by 2008 (Spence, 2008).

The rates for organizing services range between $45 and $175 per hour (Spence, 2008). However, few companies exist in the industry.
