Canada is considered to be one of the world's most prosperous countries and supports free and open trade, ranking even higher than America in economic freedom. As a result of this, the number of parcels being sent from the UK to Canada continues to grow, with many shoppers looking to purchase from the UK, whilst many expats also reside in Canada and therefore private parcels such as gifts are frequently sent too.
We recently launched a tracked mail service to Canada, using our eTrak service, allowing you to post parcels to Canada for less than ever. This service is the cheapest way to send a parcel to Canada that we have ever been able to offer, so when you compare prices using our quote engine this will be a popular choice for less urgent parcels.
If getting the best price is your aim, Drop Off options are a little cheaper as the costs involved in picking up the parcel from your home or work address are removed. The benefits of Drop Off services, don't just stop at cost either, it can help you avoid any wait at home and you can make use of extended opening hours over the weekend.
When you prefer a collected service, we can also help for a great price and you can book a courier to come and collect from your doorstep and save the hassle of heading to the Post Office or parcel shop.
If you want to send a parcel to Canada, and it needs to arrive as quickly as possible, then you should look towards our DHL services. Cheaper compared to booking directly with DHL, Air Express takes just 2-3 days to arrive in Canada to major destinations.
Even cheaper still would be Parcel Monkey's Express option - again called Air Express which is collected by Parcelforce before being shipped and delivered by DHL for almost half the cost of DHL, but only takes 1 day longer in terms of transit time.
Our other courier options also come with reasonable transit times;
Our slower tracked mail services like eTrak and TrakPak use Canada Post and are less expedited so take between 7 and 14 working days.
If you want to send a heavy package to Canada, then tracked mail is often the cheapest way of sending a parcel to Canada and offers great value for low value and non-urgent parcels.
We can offer cheap parcel delivery from the UK to Canada including all of the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland-Labrador, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Yukon; the major cities of Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Mississauga, Vancouver, London, Ottawa, Hamilton, Laval, Surrey, Brampton, Windsor, Saskatoon, Burnaby, Kitchener, Markham, Regina, Quebec, Richmond, Burlington, Oshawa, Vaughan, Saint Catharines & Oakville.
We help our customers send all kinds of items to Canada including gifts whether they be birthday presents or over the holiday season. When sending a gift you should be aware of our Customs Advice as should those who are looking for business courier services, as all items are sent DDU. We have helped customers send items like vinyl records, books and much more - however, there are restrictions on items that contain batteries and liquids.
Gifts of under $60CDN are also not subject to import tax, though this exception is applicable only to private shipments and should not be used by a business or commercial entities.
While importing to Canada isn't particularly difficult, it can be hard to find an easily-digestible list of requirements and regulations. Some items and products will be entirely prohibited from importation into Canada. This can include obvious items like asbestos products and dangerous chemicals. Some unexpected inclusions are:
A full listing of imports covered by the Hazardous Products Act.
Most other issues will deal with restricted items. Restricted items span many different product categories and, minimally, must be accompanied by proper licensing, permits or declarations. Some examples of restricted items include:
Some clothing and furniture items also have applicable restrictions. More detailed information can be found through the Canada Border Services Agency.
The Canadian customs department is likely to closely inspect packages. It will not be uncommon for a Canadian customer to notice that a package has been opened and inspected, so expect that when importing to this country.
To avoid this, always ensure that the required custom's declaration form is filled out fully and is as detailed as possible. It's also best to be honest, especially when it comes to the value of your package. If your package holds a value of $20CDN or less, no duty will be assessed to the recipient. As outlined above, gifts of under $60CDN are also not subject to import tax, but Customs Officers will check the market value of the goods.
Be sure to read our Customs Advice to avoid delays and issues with Customs.

I think Parcel Monkey has been doing a good job, the down line contractor can do a bit better.
Parcel monkey made it really easy to find the best courier to send my parcel overseas. There were a few issues with filling in the online form and had to redo it twice before it accepted the international address but once it was done the process was easy. Was really happy when my daughter texted to say the parcel had arrived within days of sending. Will use again.
Good service on pick up and quick delivery of parcel .
Very easy to use
