Shipping Policy

2019 January: With the Canada Post Rotating strike that happened, we remind you that shipping times can be affected and will be slow. We cannot guarantee fast delivery times. If you would like your items shipped faster, choose Purolator Ground for online orders. For Purolator Ground we charge $80 upfront and refund you the difference if the total is less than $80. We are still offering Canada Post $10 flat rate under $150 and FREE over $150.
