Update: Christmas delivery cut-offs
USA: Camera and clothing orders to USA using our Standard Tracked Shipping option need to be placed before Wednesday, December 14th for Christmas delivery (Christmas delivery not guaranteed). The XpressPost service cut-off date is December 15th (Christmas delivery is guaranteed). And the Expedited Parcel service cut-off is December 13 (Christmas delivery not guaranteed).
Canada: The delivery cut-off dates vary by region and shipping service.
Outside of Quebec: the cut-off date for ExpressPost is December 21st. The cut-off date for Expedited Parcel varies from December 13th to December 20th (Canada Post gave this unusually wide range of Expedited Parcel cutoff dates this year without explanation but we assume the December 13th date is for more remote locations like Yukon and the December 20th date is for closer major centres like Toronto and Ottawa).
Within Quebec: the cut-off date for Standard Tracked Shipping is Monday, December 19th. The cut-off for XpressPost is December 21st. The cut-off date for Expedited Parcel is December 19th (province-wide)
Montreal region: The cut-off date for Standard Tracked Shipping is Tueday, December 20th. The cut-off for ExpressPost is December 22nd. The cut-off date for Expedited Parcel is December 21st.

Here are some more general updates:
Our least expensive ‘Standard Tracked Shipping’ option typically arrives on the shorter end of the estimated time when going to major cities but there is no delivery time guarantee (i.e. you won’t get your postage refunded if it takes longer than the estimate; some of our more expensive options do offer a such a guarantee). We’re in Montreal, close to the New York, so east coast deliveries are typically quickest.
For a real-world estimate here are the actual delivery times for a sample of parcels we sent to the USA via Standard Tracked Shipping:
- Minneapolis, MN (4 business days).
- Pueblo, CO (7 business days)
- Casper, WY (4 business days)
- Providence, RI (3 business days)
- San Francisco, CA (4 business days)
- Hoboken, NJ (2 business days)
