Know when your parcel arrived and who signed for it

If you’re shipping a small parcel and speed isn’t an issue, consider using Registered Mail™. You can track your item, get insurance and confirm its arrival with a signature. International options available.

How much does it cost?

You pay $9 to register mail shipped in Canada – in addition to the regular postage price. You can order and print your own labels using our online tools or at any of our 6,200+ post offices. Terms and conditions apply. Price excludes taxes and is subject to change without notice.

Why use Registered Mail?

1

If speed isn’t a concern, and you’re sending a small item, the $9 flat rate may save you on tracking and other add-on fees.

2

You may save on postage fees when you use Lettermail™. Use a postage meter or indicia and you can save up to 25% on your base postage, and then add Registered Mail to your parcel mix.

Here's how it works

There are 3 ways to get Registered Mail.
  1. Get your peel-and-stick labels from any post office. Labels include a unique tracking number and corresponding barcode.
  2. Purchase prepaid envelopes from the commercial order desk at 1-888-550-6333 (for customers with a signed contract) or order online.
  3. Use EST 2.0 shipping tool to print your own barcode labels.
