Most of the people who live in Canada live in the province of Ontario, situated down on the eastern border with the United States of America where it rests against five US states: New York, Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Ontario is home to the country’s most popular city, Ontario, and its capital, Ottawa. There are over 250,000 lakes here, and the name itself is said to come either from the Huron for Great Lake (referring to Lake Ontario) or from an Iroquois word meaning beautiful water. Ontario also claims its share of the Niagara Falls which, along with other rivers, makes the province a leader in hydro-electric energy.
Sending parcels to Ontario is a doddle, a breeze and falling-off-a-log easy - as long as you stick to the tried and tested golden rule, one which has helped us along the way to becoming the UK’s biggest online parcel delivery company. And that rule is never, on any account, to trust your precious cargo to the good men and women of the proud Canadian postal service, who have much better things to be getting on with. On the contrary, the best way by far for you to get your parcel to Ontario is to engage the service of a professional courier to Ontario who will happily get the job done with the minimum of fuss.
Which is not something that can be said if you’re plucky enough to try to arrange things with the couriers direct. Even the big names that we recommend - Parcelforce, TNT and FedEx - seem to lose the plot when it comes to trying to explain to a potential customer exactly how to arrange despatch, what the terms and conditions are, and what it’s likely to cost. Luckily, we’ve penetrated the camouflage of their confusion and pulled out just the bits you’re most interested in - and that’s what you’ll find here. Furthermore, we’re delighted to say, you’ll also find our prices for a parcel delivery to Ontario cheaper than you’d get even if you did manage to go direct.
Like every country, Canada has things which it doesn’t want to let across the borders, so if you’re at all doubtful about what’s in the package when you’re about to send a parcel to Ontario, be sure to check. Oh, and don’t forget the postcode - six letters and numbers long, like most of ours, and it makes all the difference.
