Shipping & Returns


Canada Post's services continue to be impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. While most packages are being delivered within a regular time frame or only a few days late, some are experiencing significant delays due to an accumulation of packages. As they work to clear their backlog of orders, they have taken the following measures:

  1. All delivery guarantees have been suspended for packages. This means Canada Post is not required to deliver your package by a certain date.
  2. Investigations into delayed packages have been reserved only for packages that are delayed 21 business days past the delivery standard date. Any package that isn't 21 days past the delivery standard date (about one month) will not be investigated by Canada Post. Most packages are being delivered within a regular time frame or only a few days late.

Creating Brighter Days recognizes the frustration and inconvenience of a package that is delayed and therefore we are offering the following  solutions to help with the current situation.

  • We have noticed that the delays are affecting all shipping options (Flat Rate, Xpresspost, and Priority) however, Xpresspost and Priority appear to be handled with more urgency. We recommend you choose at least Xpresspost to avoid lengthy delays
  • For Xpesspost shipments that are 2 weeks past their delivery standard, contact to arrange for free Xpresspost shipping on your next order.
  • For Priority shipments that are 1 week past their delivery standard, contact to arrange for free Priority shipping on your next order.

Please note that compensation WILL NOT be offered for delayed packages shipped using Flat Rate or Expedited services. Please be prepared to wait for an undetermined length of time for your package if you choose this option.


Shipping Area and Rates

Creating Brighter Days ships only within Canada and only to Canadian Provinces. Shipping rates are calculated in real time during checkout based on destination and weight of the package. International Shipping is not available at this time.

Flat Rate Shipping

Most orders are eligible for flat rate shipping.  YT, NT, NU and Remote Areas are excluded from our flat rate shipping service. We are sorry, we cannot provide this service to these areas at this moment. List of Remote Areas can be found HERE

Order Processing Times & Order Tracking

Once an order has been processed, we are unable to upgrade or change shipping methods. We are also unable to add a product, modify or cancel the items on your order once it has been confirmed.

Orders typically take 1-2 business days to process before they ship – excluding weekends and holidays. However, we do reserve 2 to 3 business days to ship your order in case any of the items are out of stock due to delayed shipments from our suppliers. You will receive an email confirmation with your order tracking number when your order ships. Please read the shipping notification email carefully. 

Note that delivery date is always an estimate only, delivery times may vary depending on your location, weather conditions and other factors.
