Canada Post Labour Dispute 2018

Canada Post Labour Dispute 2018

With recent developments with the CUPW Union's rotating strikes this week, we can no longer put any sense of reliability on the Canada Post system.

We've certainly seen orders slow down since the dispute began, but you have nothing to worry about when ordering from us - We're now using Couriers for all "Best Rate" shipments! In most cases, the added cost for courier is small or non-existent (Couriers are often cheaper than Canada Post anyway). Choose "Best Rate Shipping" and we'll use UPS, Canpar or Purolator for your order. If you'd still prefer Canada Post, you can still choose it at checkout and we'll get your order out as quickly as we can, in hopes it will not be delayed for long.

Please feel free to ask any questions about shipping in our Contact Us page.

We hope you'll put your trust in us to ship during this time.


Shipping within Canada:

We have adjusted our "Best Rate" shipping to include only Courier Rates.  You'll see now our Best Rate will show (Safe From Labour Dispute)  - We'll continue to let you choose Canada Post services with a marker stating that there is a possible dispute. 

We have many options for shipping.  In some locations across Canada, shipping rates have gone up to accommodate courier shipping.  In many parts of Canada, Courier shipping is cheaper than Canada Post, and you wont notice any change at all.


Shipping to the USA / International:

Are you in the USA or International?  No problem! 

Dragon Moon Gifts:

We'll be shipping all orders out with DHL Global Mail - doing a consolidation every week or so (as needed) to our Ontario office - This is a trackable service with insurance and still uses the mail system to get your order to you. This may add a few days onto service, but nothing too major.  Some orders to the USA may ship by UPS instead.


West Wind Gifts:

You're already enjoying fast service with DHL Global Mail, as orders ship out of Ontario already.  Everything is as per usual with no delays.
