September 4th Update

By: Duncan McLean

How we’re working to offer the best auction & Appraisal services

Waddington’s continues to follow government guidelines to protect our staff and clients and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

While access to our physical offices and gallery spaces continues to be restricted, we are committed to providing the best service to our clients from our remote offices. The safety of our staff, our clients and the community is always at the forefront of all our planning.

Our onsite team adheres to strict guidelines and will provide detailed safety protocols when arranging pick up, drop off and preview appointments.

Previews by Appointment

Please note that we continue to monitor access to our office and gallery. However, we are pleased to provide private appointments for previews and consultations.

Previews of our major Canadian Fine Art and Inuit Art auctions in September are available by scheduled appointments. Please contact the departments directly to book your appointment.

Curbside Pick ups & Drop Offs

We are pleased to provide options for curb side pick up and shipping of your purchased items, as well as receiving consignments, at our gallery. Contact us to find out more, or book an appointment.


While it is not clear what the next several months will look like, we have imagined what the remainder of the 2020 auction season will be, and it includes lots of interesting auctions! We’ve learned to be flexible and to adapt to new ways of doing business. Our online auction capability is a core strength for our business and we are excited to find new ways to leverage its potential.
