Default Translation of non french/English passport stamps for citizenship

I was going to go with Mosaic in Vancouver to get my non English/French passport stamps translated.

Originally when I got a quote it was just for a Turkish Exit and Entry at $35 - (This trip was within the eligibility period but before I came to Canada on my IEC)
Now I have a Mexican entry stamp from late last year (after I submitted my Citizenship application so outside the eligibility period).

My new quote is $35 for each language, which makes it a total of $70 - I find that excessive for 3 passport stamps, although I was happy to pay $35 before

Is there any other places around Vancouver area or Burnaby that have registered translation services that people have used or online preferably places that I don't need an affidavit for.

Thanks

Managed to get the following quotes:

Immigrant Services of Calgary - $45 + $5 shipping
Docsbase (based in Ontario) - $30 + free shipping - this company has very mixed reviews though and I don't know if the translations would be accepted
Aportto Translation (based in Vancouver) - Turkish stamps $95 + GST, Spanish stamp $49 + GST - around $150 (no chance!)

Im thinking of going with Immigrant Services of Calgary and getting it mailed - has anyone used them for translations?

$100 was quoted by Options

im just struggling to understand the difference between an avadivit and certified copy.

Mosaic said they don’t send a certified copy. This is what they wrote in an email

MOSAIC is recognized by IRCC to do translations for immigration purposes. We do not need to attach an affidavit.Normally, when you pick up the translation, we would ask you to bring a colour photocopy of the passport (all pages), which we would then stamp and attach to the translation, along with signed declarations from the translators. This is not a certified copy, but is accepted for citizenship purposes.
where as Immigrant Services of Calgary do:

We provide the translation, the Statutory of Declaration certified by a Commissioner for Oath, and we attached copy of the document in its original language to the certified translation.
