Canada came out of the 2008 recession in a strong position and is currently growing at a rapid rate, making it a hotbed for trade and investment.
There are over 36 million people living in Canada with some of the largest industries being oil & gas, mining and liquified & natural gas. The average wage in Canada is just over $50,000 CAD, giving many Canadians plenty of spending money for luxury goods. The following industries are where the highest wages are paid:
There are notable business opportunities in Canada for rail; over $6 billion CAD have been allocated to developing some of Canada's largest rail networks. Canada also has 55% of the world's natural oil reserves and UK businesses are free to invest in these enterprises.
In 2013 alone, trade between Britain and Canada was worth £7.5 billion. The top UK exports to Canada are as follows:
It is worth noting that heavy regulation in Canada makes it difficult for UK law firms to do business in Canada.

My parcel was delivered on time in Toronto before my sister’s isolation ends. And the box wasn’t tattered at all when I saw during videocall.
Amazing tracking details and amazing quality for the money. Sent parcel on 2st of December from London and had it delivered on 24th in Montreal. Brilliant
Brilliant, stress free, efficient and very good price, I will never use Hermes again. Parcel was delivered very quickly, the tracking info was kept up to date.
Very efficient service! Placed order on a Monday, it was collected on Tuesday and arrived in Canada the following Monday, on the day specified. Cannot fault this service and would definitely recommend.
They delivered on the promised delivery date and made the process extremely easy during this covid-19 pandemic. All employees that we interacted with were very kind and provided a great service. Definitely will recommend this service to others.
Collected a parcel from Leeds and delivered 700 mile north of Vancouver in Canada in 6 days. Take some beating for a standard delivery charge.Keep up the good work.
Efficient from start to finish. Worked like clockwork, and tracking meant we knew what was happening every leg of the journey. Very happy.
Fantastic service from pickup at my door to actually delivering on the date as promised in Canada.Thank you so much.

It is worth noting that Canada is the second largest country on Earth and has a population of over 36 million. Due to the huge area that the nation occupies, prices and delivery times differ throughout; even when using the same service.
As vast swathes of Canada are an icy tundra, many Canadian addresses are located in remote areas. Remote areas are defined by courier companies as areas that are not easily accessible for pickups and deliveries. Extra charges will apply if your destination address is located within a remote area. Most deliveries won't have this charge though, as more than 50% of Canadians live in the small south-eastern pocket of land that borders the USA. This is because Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa; Canada's 1st, 2nd and 4th biggest cities respectively, are found in this area.
Any parcel that arrives in Canada through international shipping must pass through Canada Border Service Agency (customs) before it finds its way into a delivery truck.
When shipping a parcel from the UK to an international destination, there is often a set parcel value which if your shipment falls below, you do not have to pay import duties or tax.
In Canada this value is set at $20 CAD (Twenty Canadian Dollars). If you are sending a gift to someone in Canada worth $60 CAD or less, it is exempt from all customs duties and taxes. Goods that do not qualify for the Canadian $60 CAD gift exemption are tobacco, alcoholic beverages, advertising material and any items sent by a business.
If your parcel is not exempt from duties or taxes, the recipient will have to pay the relevant fees. This amount will be based on a few relevant factors:
Check ParcelHero's Prohibited items list to ensure that the items that you intend to ship will be allowed to enter the country. Canadian authorities prohibit the import of various items that you can find on their dedicated customs site. Notable items that are prohibited by the Canadian border authority include:

You can import maple syrup to the UK as long as it is meant only for personal use and it can be considered "a reasonable amount." It must also follow all food packaging guidelines, including being in a properly labelled, sealed bottle.
Addresses in Canada will look familiar to those sending parcels from the UK as they follow a similar structure to British addresses. If sending to the French areas of Canada, such as Quebec, you do not have to use the French language when writing the address.
