Canadian Taxes, Duties and Customs FAQ

If you order more than one item, the shipping rates may be incorrect.  Contact us for more information.

Costs associated with shipping to Canada can be confusing.  Here is a breakdown to give you an idea of what to expect when you order a product from us. (All prices shown below are in US dollars.)

When you order a product from us, on the checkout page, you will be charged a shipping price.  

We will ship your the package by FedEx (we normally only ship USPS if it is a small item such as a set of number magnets.) 

When the package arrives, you will receive a bill from FedEx.  This bill is not for additional shipping charges.  It is for charges such as duties, taxes and fees that FedEx collects and remits to the the Canadian government, the customs office, etc.  

1) Clearance Entry Fee*: 17 CAD - 54 CAD 
2) HST taxes**:  The HST rate is 15% in all participating provinces except Ontario, where it is 13%.
3) Disbursement fee***: 2% for every $100 in value


*Clearance Entry Fee: This is the fee that FedEx charges to arrange the clearance services - processing the paperwork required by the Canada Customs and Border Protection.

Generally the Clearance Entry Fee starts at about 17CAD for a package valued at 50CAD, to 32CAD for a package valued at 200CAD

**HST taxes:  We do not collect Sales Tax that your Province charges.  FedEx collects it and remits it to your government

***Dispersement Fee:  FedEx pays the Duty and Tax charges on your behalf to ensure they can deliver your shipment as quickly as possible.


*Northern Canada 
Northern Canada provinces are subject to Fedex’s Northern Canada Surcharge: an additional charge applies for packages destined to the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Labrador. This surcharge applies to postal codes including, but not limited to, A0K, A0P-A0R, A2V and X0A-Y9Z

Acrylic pipeline Board

I absolutely love the real estate pipeline board with the gold hardware. It keeps me so organized and really helps motivate me to keep filling up the board. It looks great in my office. Recommend 100%

Great customer service

I love this acrylic calendar and the customer service was great!

Seriously in love with this calendar! Looks so great in our kitchen, such a nice clean style and the large size is perfect!

This piece is really wonderful and worth every penny - I already have it up in my office and has got me stylishly organized. Nice work. You will not be dissappointed

Fantastic quality product at a great price

I ordered a large (36 x 48) board for work and could not be happier with the outcome! It looks fantastic, shipped quickly and the communication with the girlFriday team was great! They were so helpful at translating my scribbles into something that looks SO high end. I thought my basement level tech skills would be an issue but the walked me through everything and made it fun and easy! Will definitely be ordering more from this company in the future! Highly recommend!

I love it!

I was obsessed with this board when I seen it. I have a huge white board in my office I’ve been using for the past two years and this was right on time because I was running out of space to efficiently manage my pipeline. Long story I needed up with two…Now I have two side by side and planning to fill the second one soon! Kudos to this company for amazing customer service as well. Thanks

Really nice design and execution

Wonderful addition to my office.

The Realtor Whiteboard is a great tool for keeping track of deadlines during the buy/sell process. Easy order and proofing process and packaged securely. Several people have stopped by my office and mentioned how nice it is. I have given out the cards that were included in the delivery. :)

Great Communication and Final Product

I was looking for a solution to flexibly communicate information to our guests that matched our existing décor. Girl Friday worked with me to use our information and logo to design a great custom whiteboard! Throughout the whole process their team worked with me to answer questions and make sure the design met our needs. I'll definitely use them again in the future!
