Finishing a basement in Ontario

I plan to finish the basement of 2200 sq ft, four year old house in Ontario. I would like to do some things by myself and some through a contractor. In order to make a decision, I need to know reasonable costs. Would anybody know reasonable cost of the following items including materials:
1. Cost of framing an interior wall per ft. Extra cost for doors.
2. Cost of framing heating/ cooling air ductwork
3. Cost of drywalling
4. Cost of taping drywall, applying mud, sanding etc.
5. Cost of electrical work per outlet/ switch
6. Cost of any other important item I may have missed. Thanks for any help.

Cost questions are not going to end well on any web site.
Just going to have to make some local calls to get pricing.
Any general contractor should be able to take care of all these jobs.

There's no answer. it really comes down to what you're willing to pay. what's reasonable for one person might not be reasonable for another. and keep in mind, you get what you pay for.

You have to decide for yourself what your budget for this project is, then budget out each item accordingly depending on your personal preference and importance.
