Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


Head to Canada Post's website and track your package. Every customer receives an email with their tracking number when we fulfill their order. If you have not received this, or deleted it, reach out to our team. We'll be happy to help you track down your package via Canada Post. 

If you have tracked your package, and it is saying delivered but it is not at your home, and you have not received a notice by Canada Post please reach out to our team. We, as a business will need to open up a case with Canada Post to file a lost package claim. This process can take several days. Don't worry, we'll keep you informed every step of the way!

When we receive your email, social media message, or phone call about your missing package our team will contact Canada Post. We will open an investigation with them for your lost package. Our team will then send you an email to let you know we have opened the investigation with Canada Post. Canada Post will then search their system to coordinate who among their drivers had your package. We usually hear back from Canada Post within 1-2 business days, but it can take longer than this - we appreciate your patience. When we receive an update from Canada Post, we will contact you to let your know next steps. 

As a small business, we need to wait until the package has been found or has been identified as missing. If we have identified that Canada Post has found the package (i.e. issue with shipping address), we will receive the package back to the shop. Our team will print a new shipping label, and send you a new tracking number. The package will be sent back to Canada Post and delivered to you, successfully this time! If the package is identified as lost, we will need to wait for confirmation from Canada Post - where they will provide reimbursement to us, as a small business. Once we receive this, we can send out your order - with new products, and provide you with a new tracking number. 


All sales are final at Purple Urchin - read our return policy here.

If you have not received a shipping confirmation email, with your tracking number and would like to alter your order - replacing the same product with an alternative scent, or a product of similar value, we can occasionally make exceptions. Reach out to our team as soon as possible, or phone our shop  - during store hours (613-680-6889). Staff will need to have management sign off on the exchange, and therefore your order may be delayed 1 business day while corresponding internally. 


We’re unable to ship a single order to multiple addresses. You’ll need to create a new order for each shipping address.
