End of Day Processing

All items shipped by Canada Post must be accompanied by a paper Manifest. The corresponding electronic data from this Manifest must be transmitted prior to drop off or pick-up.

The Manifest preview is for review and correctional purposes only. It does not replace the Manifest, which must accompany your shipment to a Canada Post induction site. Click "Transmit to CPC" to automatically save and finalize the shipment. Once transmitted, the Canada Post logo will appear at the top left and Manifest number will appear at the top right. This printed document must accompany the shipment.

The Manifest must accurately detail the items being presented to Canada Post and items not properly Manifested may result in a surcharge.

Note: End of Day does not mean you cannot process additional shipments. If you find you have additional shipments ready for Canada Post you are able to process more than one End of Day. This means you can get those shipments out today and not have to wait until tomorrow.
