OTTAWA – As Canadians continue to connect through the postal system, Canada Post will maintain stamp prices at 2020 levels through 2021. That means the price of a stamp for a letter mailed within Canada and weighing less than 30 g will remain at $0.92 when purchased as part of a booklet, coil or pane, and $1.07 when purchased individually. Stamp prices for letters, cards and postcards sent to the U.S. and other international destinations will also remain the same.

Canada Post understands the importance of the delivery services it provides. Following our annual review, we worked to minimize the impact of price changes on all customers, particularly small businesses. The following price changes will take effect January 11, 2021:

  • Many small businesses rely on postage meters. Domestic meter rates will see a modest increase of 1.2%.
  • Commercial Lettermail customers will see a modest rate increase.
  • As for parcels, the weighted average price increase for domestic parcels will be 3.9%. For parcels sent to the U.S. and other international destinations, the weighted average price increase is 1.0%.

Small businesses looking for support or special discounts on shipping and other services are encouraged to sign up for the free Canada Post Solutions for Small BusinessTM program. In 2020, Canada Post saw a significant increase in the number of small businesses signing up for this program.
