Is garage attached or free-standing?
How far away is existing plumbing?
What obstacles are present?

Making some calls to local plumbing company's is the only way to know the real cost.
Any pricing on line will just be guesses.

There are way too many variables to even take a guess at the cost.

Mod note: OP is in Canada

Location plays a huge part in pricing also. Your question is so vague it's impossible to answer just on that, not counting the other variables.

Getting supply piping to another building is pretty easy. Most of the work is digging under the frost line. Some plumbers will work with you if you get some unskilled labor to dig the trench, they'll handle the piping for you.

The drain pipes are typically more difficult since you need to get a proper pitch down to the existing drains. This depends a lot on the location and depth of the building drain, which needs to be cut and spliced in. Also depends on what kind of fixtures you'll be putting in the garage. A sink vs a full bath, etc.
