Rate Change FAQ

What is this rate change about?
Canada Post announced this rate change late last year. This rate change affects all letter and parcel rates for both domestic and international destinations. For detailed information regarding the affected rates, you can contact Canada Post at 1-800-267-1177, or check their website anytime for more information.

Why did I receive a rate change package?
Effective January 14, 2013, Canada Post has increased some lettermail rates. Our records indicate that you have a postage meter and scale, so a pak or rate card was sent out to ensure that you are using the correct rates for postage as per Canada Post Corporation regulations.

What do I do with the pak?
You need to take out the current pak that is in your scale and replace it with the new one that was sent to you. You are required to return the old pak to us in the envelope provided. If you received a rate card you must download the rates. Instructions are included in the package, and for your convenience they can also be accessed from the menu above.

Is this rate change mandatory?
This is a regulated event where all mailing system scales in Canada are required to support current Canada Post rates. The most current rates are in effect as of January 14, 2013.

How many more rate changes can we expect?
In recent years, Canada Post has introduced the majority of changes to postage rates in January. However, new rates can be introduced intermittently, which will require additional updates to all mailing systems. Neopost Canada offers rate change protection through our MailCare Service Programs to ensure that our customers will not incur additional fees if Canada Post introduces multiple rate changes during a single calendar year.
