We currently ship throughout Canada. We do not ship to international addresses. 

When an order is placed and shipping is selected, our retail team in Ottawa will fulfill your online order by the end of the next business day (please note: our business days are Wednesday through Sunday). When your order is fulfilled, you will receive a shipping confirmation email with your tracking number.

All orders are dropped off at Canada Post within the same day you receive your shipping confirmation email and tracking number, or the following Purple Urchin business day. When we drop orders off at Canada Post, your tracking number is entered into their system, which then populates the live, online tracking. From there Canada Post is responsible for your package. You will be able to track your package through Canada Post's website. Enter your tracking number here to track your package and receive updates about the shipping status of your order. 

In Canada, we offer the following services through Canada Post: 

  • Expedited Parcel
  • Priority
  • Xpresspost

    Canada Post is responsible for adhering to the selected parcel timeline specified. 

    Our shipping rates are determined by Canada Post based on the weight of the package, where it's being shipped to, and the service type you selected at checkout. 

    Canada Post rates are usually a minimum of $12-$13 and up. 

    Customers are responsible for providing the correct AND full address for shipping. Failure to do so will result in your package being returned to Purple Urchin. You can then choose to pick up your order in store (free of charge), or have us resend your parcel at Canada Post's shipping rates, to be paid online before your shipment is rescheduled. Refunds will not be provided.

    ***We offer FREE Canada-wide shipping on orders over $100 (before tax)***
