Cost to Mail a Letter in Canada Goes Up Today!

"With the increasing use of digital communication and the historic decline of letter mail volumes, Canada Post has begun to post significant financial losses," the corporation said in a December news release.

As of April 1, 2014 (today)  the cost to mail a single letter envelope (up to 30g) in Canada goes up from 63 cents to 85 cents. The 85-cent rate is only available if stamps are purchased in a pack. If you want to buy just one stamp, it will cost $1.00. All other package mail will also cost more to mail (larger envelopes can cost up to $1.80 each). US mail costs anywhere from $1.20 to $2.95 depending on how much it weighs and international postage costs between $2.50 to $5.90 - again depending on the weight. Check the Canada Post website (www.canadapost.ca) for prices for larger packages.
