Covid 19 Shipping Update
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, most couriers have temporarily suspended all time guarantees regarding their shipments. Shipment time will vary with each destination, and we are seeing an average of 2-14 days. In some cases shipments are delayed at particular processing centers and shipping times may drastically increase. We are continually re-evaluating our estimated shipping times and are working closely with Canada Post to ensure that we can deliver your package safely and quickly. If your shipment has been delayed beyond the expected delivery date, please wait an additional 72 hours for Canada Post to provide an update. After 72 hours please contact us and we can evaluate the next steps that will need to be taken; however, 99% of all shipment delays are resolved the fastest by waiting for the original shipment.
