About > Shipping Rates/Times
Art Metropole ships all items insured through Canada Post, unless otherwise requested in the Special Instructions field at the end of this Checkout process.
All items shipped within Canada are subject to applicable provincial sales taxes. Applicable taxes will be included in the Taxes subtotal of your order. International shipments are tax exempt.
Shipping within Canada is FREE, using either regular mail or Expedited Parcel service.
To the US and Elsewhere
Online order confimation emails list an estimated shipping cost. This estimate is revised to reflect actual shipping costs based on order dimensions and weight when Art Metropole staff contact you to arrange payment. Shipping times take approximately 6 – 12 business days between major centres.
Please Note: Canadian orders shipped by Expedited Parcel can only be left in what is deemed to be a secure location. If no one is available to accept the package, and if a secure drop-off location is not available, then a card will be left advising that the package can be picked up at the nearest Canada Post outlet.
International orders may be subject to the customs fees and import duties. For customs purposes, we note all shipments to the full value of the invoice.
If you would prefer courier service, please contact us. Be warned that surface mail, while cheaper, will take 6 to 10 weeks.
