Special Shipping

Individuals can now ship and receive cannabis within Canada. Cannabis is a regulated product with specific delivery requirements.

How much cannabis can I ship?

Canadians can share a maximum of 30 grams of dried, recreational cannabis with other adults (age varies by province) within Canada can be shipped on the bus as long as the packaging and quantity requirements and restrictions have been met.​​​

What are the cannabis packaging requirements?
  • The sender needs to make sure the contents, packaging and labeling of their shipments follow all applicable legislation and regulations:

  • Odour-proof, tamper-proof and leak-proof inner and outer packaging.

  • Anonymous outer packaging without any marking or advertising that indicates what’s in the package.

  • Self-sealing and scent-blocking packaging can be purchased from Canada Post.

 

Collect on Delivery (C.O.D.)

What is Collect on Delivery?

 It allows the sender to collect a fee from the person receiving a parcel delivery. We collect the payment on behalf of the sender before handing over the parcel, and remit the fee back to the shipper.

What is the C.O.D. Rate?

The sender must pay the C.O.D. fee of $3 plus shipping fees.

How it Works

You are only able to send a C.O.D. parcel if the recipient has requested the item.

  1. Bring your C.O.D. parcel to any of our shipping locations to have the item weighed.
  2. You pay the shipping fee, as well as the C.O.D. fee
  3. Specify the amount you want to collect from the recipient, as well as their information.
  4. The item can be picked up by the recipient at one of our locations, and can use any method of payment.
  5. If the C.O.D. item is delivered to their door* in larger centre, it will be charged on account so no payment needs to exchange hands.
  6. The payment is remitted to the sender.
