Shipping Labels (Canada Post)

SUMA initially partnered with Canada Post for a pre-paid label purchasing program to lower the cost of regulatory changes for shipping water samples. However, SUMA members can use these labels to ship just about anything that fits within the weight and size limits set by Canada Post, not just water samples.

Please note:
Canada Post has changed their calculation of dimensional weight, and local postal outlets are now suggesting that water samples need to be sent using the 5 kg label rather than the 1.36 kg size previously used.

Check with your local postal outlet to determine which service will ensure 48-hour delivery from time of sample collection.

  • Xpresspost typically takes one to two days depending on distance.

Member Advantages

  • Guaranteed delivery with tracking capability in the event of loss
  • Price at time of purchase remains fixed, not affected by Canada Post increases
  • Bulk purchasing by SUMA assures consistency in pricing
  • Guaranteed same day shipping of orders from the SUMA office
  • Labels can be used for shipping any items within the weight and cubing range indicated on the label

Shipping labels come in packages of 25:
Xpresspost Up to 1.36kg: $456.25                 Over 1.36kg – 5kg: $542.00   
Prices include shipping and handling, and are subject to GST. Pricing reflects Canada Post’s increasing fuel surcharge, which has increased to 14 per cent, up from 5 per cent in October 2020. *These prices are effective January 15, 2024.
