Canada Post and Shopify share a common goal of making shipping easy and inexpensive for Canadian entrepreneurs. Being able to buy discounted postage in the same place merchants manage their shipping and fulfillment is an important step toward simplifying and improving the ecommerce experience for business owners.

"These are exciting times for our industry. Our business is evolving and changing at a tremendous clip, forcing us to be flexible and innovative and to think like a startup," says Valérie Normand, director of Parcels and E-commerce Solutions Integration at Canada Post.

"That can be a challenge for a business that is more than 250 years old. But we are up to the challenge. Paying attention to what other innovators are doing – companies like Shopify – is critical to our future."

"By partnering with Canada Post, we're extending our commitment to streamlining shipping and product delivery for over 21,000 merchants across Canada, so they can focus on other aspects of their business," says Louis Kearns, director of Product and Merchant Solutions at Shopify.

"Merchants can now quickly buy and print discounted Canada Post shipping labels without ever leaving Shopify."

Canada Post delivers nearly two of every three parcels Canadians order online, and is a leader in offering innovative, convenient delivery and other ecommerce solutions.
