Shipping and Taxes


The Great Canadian Kite Company ships via a number of reputable courier companies, including Canada Post, UPS, Fedex, Canpar and Purolator.

Shipping Costs for kites have a lot more to do with volumetric weight than net weight.

Please note: Kites/packages over 100cm in shipping length may be subject to an additional $25 over-sized surcharge depending on the carrier. You will be notified by email if the over-sized fee is applicable. (During Holiday shipping season rate will increase to $35)

Remote Areas: Shipping rates in our store are calculated on a general province basis.  Remote or poorly serviced areas may be subject to an additional shipping fee and delivery time. Some area's have limited carrier options.  You will be notified by email if extra shipping charges are required.
