All orders are shipped within 3 business days of receiving the order.
We ship to anywhere in the world, except the United States, using Australia Post or a local courier.
It has been our experience that couriers treat our parcels with greater care and provide better customer service than Australia Post, so we mostly use several preferred couriers and Australia Post only where necessary. If you insist that your parcel be shipped with Australia Post, please let us know at the time of placing your order but we will not be liable for any damage incurred in transit.
If noone is at home when delivery is attempted, you should receive a 'calling card' explaining either where to collect your parcel or how to arrange redelivery.
If noone will be at home during the day, you might consider having the order shipped to a work address.
Authority to Leave - you can also leave special instructions (in the Message Box during Checkout) for the order to be left in a safe location should you not be at home. Please note, however, that by doing so you take responsibility should the order go missing after it is delivered.
If you choose to ship via express post, the order will only arrive next day if you are in the Australia Post next day delivery network and this option is subject to Australia Post (or relevant courier) fulfilling their service guarantee.
If you require your order by a specific date, please highlight this to us when you place your order so that we can get you an accurate shipping fee for getting the order to you by that date.
We suggest shipping to an air conditioned destination so that heat-sensitive products are not adversely affected by air temperatures. O Canada does not accept responsibility for the quality of products on arrival.
While our shipping costs are normally accurate, we do reserve the right to advise of extra shipping costs that occur based on orders that require multiple shipments, excessive weight or volume charges.
Delivery times vary based on your location. General guidelines for capital cities:
Brisbane/Sydney: 2 days
Canberra/Melbourne: 3 days
Adelaide: 4 days
Perth: 6-8 days
Hobart: 7 days
Darwin: 8 days
Please remember that it can take up to 3 business days before we ship so those delivery times start after the parcel has been packed (not from the moment of being ordered). Again, if you require your order by a specific date, please let us know.
If you are in the Brisbane area and would like to collect your order in person, we do offer local pick up. Local pick up orders are delivered to National Storage, 114 Montpelier Road, Bowen Hills. We will send you a Shipping Confirmation to let you know that your order is ready for collection and then you can pick it up any time after that. For more information and hours, please visit their website: https://www.nationalstorage.com.au/locations/fortitude-valley/
International orders should arrive between 5 -10 weeks after the order has been shipped, but we cannot guarantee this.
Please note that we cannot be responsible for delays in shipping caused by situations out of our control such as Customs delays and other government inspections.
Best Before Dates
O Canada does not carry many snack products because of their short shelf life. Due to the variations in the length of shipping times, we cannot guarantee arrival before the Best Before date unless shipped by express shipping. We do not stock any products that have “expiry” or “use by” dates. For more information regarding the differences between “best before” dates and “expiry”/”use by” dates, please click here.
If an order is returned to us because the recipient's address was incorrect or the package was unclaimed, we will resend the package, once we receive the correct address, and recharge the shipping fee. If the error was ours, we will reship at no additional cost.
We package your order with the utmost care and regret that we cannot be held responsible for products getting damaged during shipping.
All products shipped in glass containers are wrapped in bubble wrap and packed securely. For larger orders, we may opt to ship glass items separately and an additional shipping charge may apply (of which we will notify you). Australia Post does not insure or guarantee shipments of glass or ceramics so we will not replace items that are broken in Australia Post shipments.
The amount billed for shipping on your invoice is an estimate (which is usually correct). Should the final shipping cost be more than estimated, we will notify you before shipping; should it be less, we will most happily refund the difference to you.
Your order may be cancelled at any time prior to shipping and you will receive a full refund. If, however, the item was packed and awaiting shipment, we will charge a restocking fee of 25% of the value of the shipment.
All packages are subject to random checks by Customs officials of all countries. While this may cause a delay in the arrival of the shipment, we cannot be held responsible for any delays as a result of this.
Since import regulations vary for each country, please consult your Customs office before placing your order. Your order must conform to the regulations of the destination country.
