December 16 last day to ship regular parcels nationally

For regular parcels that are going somewhere nationally, you should ship them between December 9 and December 16.

Regional regular parcels should be mailed between December 15 and December 17.

If you're using a flat rate box and sending something nationally, you should get that done between December 11 and December 18.

A flat rate box lets you ship items up to five kilograms anywhere in Canada.

For anyone sending out cards, December 18 is the deadline if they're going somewhere national.

That's also the last day to send stuff nationally with Xpresspost.

If you'll be sending packages with FedEx Canada, there are also shipping deadlines to be aware of!
