Yes, it is that time of year again - we are getting close to the suggested holiday shipping cutoffs for Canada Post for some countries. Whether you are a customer or a Canadian ecommerce business owner, please take note of the following suggested shipping deadlines for delivery by December 24th. (These are not guarantees, and I highly recommend ordering well before these dates, or upgrading to faster shipping, if you need your purchases to arrive by Christmas.)

Suggested Dates for Regular Shipping from Canada

  • Africa - November 25
  • Asia/Australia/New Zealand - December 1
  • Central/South America/Caribbean - December 1
  • Europe - December 1
  • Middle East - December 1
  • United States - December 11

Just a quick reminder that shipping from Canada to pretty much anywhere - including Canada - can be slower than you might hope, so if you want to receive your order by December 24th (which is a Saturday this year), here are Canada Post's suggested Christmas shipping deadlines for 2016:

  • Canada - packages December 12 (Xpresspost is December 21); lettermail Dec. 19 (my items ship lettermail)
  • United States - December 12 (Xpresspost is December 16)
  • Africa - November 25
  • Asia - December 2
  • Australia - December 2
  • Caribbean - December 2
  • Central America - December 2
  • Europe - December 2
  • Middle East - December 2
  • New Zealand - December 2
  • South America - December 2

I am unable to offer the faster Xpresspost option automatically on this website for countries other than the US and Canada, but just let me know if you are interested, and I will be happy to calculate it for your location and send you an invoice. 

Since these are only "suggested" guidelines, I strongly recommend buying your gifts before the date listed for your region, given the known delays at this time of year.
