How Much is Shipping?
We offer Canada Post Expedited Parcel Service calculated at a discounted rate (based on your location and parcel size).
Due to rising fuel prices, the cost of shipping in Canada has increased dramatically. We are trying to ease the pain by offering a discounted Flat Rate shipping fee for Canada Post Expedited Parcel Service. (Note that in most instances, we are paying MORE than we are charging for shipping).

- FREE – Orders over $95
- $9.50 – Southern Ontario
- $12.50 – Northern Ontario & Quebec
- $14.50 – Rest of Canada
