For orders under $120 we offer a flat rate of $19 for anywhere in Canada.

Please allow an extra 1-3 business days for shipping if you live in a remote area. We do not offer postage refunds if your order arrives late due Canada Post delays.

We ship from Vancouver Island and use Canada Post tracked mail, The delivery standard for regular mail sent inside Canada is:

Two business days for local mail
Three business days within the province
Four days for national mail

Yes. Once your order has been packed and shipped, we will email you an order confirmation email that will contain your tracking number. You’ll find your tracking number linked in the bottom half of the email that will redirect you to the Canada Post tracking site when clicked.

Please check your junk folder to make sure your order confirmation emails aren’t missed.

Canada Post can take up to 48 hours to scan tracking information once they receive it from our facility. Scans and/or updates are not usually made over the weekends. Your tracking may take longer to update if it was shipped on a Friday.

Please keep your eyes on the Canada Post website and updated information should be available soon. If it is not, please email orders@reefside.ca and we will look into it.

Canada Post can take up to 48 hours to scan tracking information once they receive it from our facility. Scans and/or updates are not usually made over the weekends. Your tracking may take longer to update if it was shipped on a Friday.  If your package is still not trackable after 48 hours please contact our customer support team at orders@reefside.ca.

If your tracking has been updated on Canada Post’s website but you haven’t seen any new updates for more than 48 hours it’s most likely due to a missed scan which is common.

More often than not, members still get their packages on time.

If you have still not received your package 2 days AFTER the expected delivery date noted by Canada Post, please let us know.

If your package was not deliverable due to an address mistake at the time of order, we will not be able to replace your package.  Please let us know if this occurs.  Your package will likely be sent back to us.  Once we receive it and we’re sent an additional shipping payment from you, we will re-ship your order.  If it does not make it back to us, you will be responsible for re-ordering and paying for your new order.

At Reefside, we try our best to get orders out the same day they are placed. We pride ourselves on a quick turnaround time from order placement to package shipment. Once your package is in the hands of Canada Post we have no control over delivery times, errors, etc. The majority of our packages are delivered on time and without issue. However, there are instances where packages are late or go missing.

If an order is undelivered and deemed “unrecoverable” by Canada Post, we will send you a 1 x replacement package, free of charge (up to a maximum of $250.00).

We provide this service because we know many of our members use the products we sell as medicine.

To initiate a shipping claim with us:

  • Wait 2 business days AFTER the expected arrival date noted on the Canada Post website to ensure your package simply isn’t late.
  • Contact us at orders@reefside.ca and let us know your package has not arrived. Include your order number in the message so we know which order you’re referring to.
  • We will do our own internal investigation into the issue.
  • If your package has, in fact, been lost and does not turn up after five (5) business days after your expected delivery date, we will issue a one time replacement package (up to $250.00).
    • Note that we may request an alternate address to send the package to.
    • If the original package turns up for whatever reason, we will ask that you not accept delivery of the replacement package so it is returned to us.

Other shipping policies:

  • We do not offer postage refunds if your order arrives late due to any postal delays.
  • If you provide an incorrect address and your package is returned to us, you will be required to re-send the shipping fee. Once we receive the shipping fee and the original package back in the mail we will resend it out to you.

If you check your tracking number and it looks like your parcel is being sent to the wrong city or address, it’s likely due to an error by Canada Post or an error when filling in your address at the time of placing your order. Errors occasionally occur and can result in a delay of 1-2+ days.

Please double check the shipping address you supplied when you placed your order in your order details.  If you notice an error, contact Canada Post with your tracking number and request that they reroute it.

We do not accept responsibility or liability for orders with an incorrect address at the time of ordering. Because these orders cannot be returned to us we cannot issue a credit or re-order.

If you did not make an error in your shipping address at the time of placing your order, please let us know immediately at orders@reefside.ca.

If the Canada Post website states that your order has been successfully delivered but you have not received your order:

  1. a) the postal worker put it in the wrong mailbox, or
  2. b) a postal worker has scanned in all packages that are still in delivery by mistake.

If you do not get your package within 2 days after the expected delivery date, let us know immediately so we can file a trace request. Canada Post will investigate which can take up to 5 business days to complete. If they can locate the package, they will ship it to you and you’ll get it a few days later. If it’s unrecoverable, we will send you a 1x replacement free of charge (up to a maximum of $250).

Please follow your tracking information and collect your package from your mailbox promptly to avoid melted goods. During the summertime, heat sensitive products such as gummies and chocolate will be shipped in boxes and will not be shipped on Fridays to reduce time in postal warehouses.
