How does Shipping Work?
At first glance, you are right to wonder if shipping food from the USA is not going to be too expensive. Don't worry, they have thought of that too. Purolator is the cheapest way to ship to Canada. There are no surprises, and no duties or brokerage fees - just one flat shipping fee.
Canadian Shipping rates:
All auto-orders: $19.95 (another great reason to go with auto-order)
All non auto-orders: $49.95
There is one little hitch... Unfortunately, because frozen food only stays frozen for 6 to 8 hours, even Purolator can't get it to you that quickly. So, frozen foods cannot be shipped to Canada.
