If you’re flying from Eastern Canada, expect to pay somewhere in the $600-$700 rage for a return flight to Reykjavik. Flights from Western Canadian cities are usually a few hundred more, in the $900-$1,000 range.
After the recent collapse of the ultra-budget WOW Air, unfortunately prices of flights to Iceland have, generally, increased. Air Canada Rouge does tend to be lower cost, so keep an eye on sales if you are looking for a bargain.
The winter months, from October to January (with the exception of peak-season flights around Christmas and New Years), you’re most likely to find the cheapest fares from across Canada to Iceland.
