Why I have been hesitant to order anything at all, even elsewhere.

I read of UK'rs or even Americans somehow getting packages rather quickly but i don't have the same faith in that speed for Canada.
Unless there are Canadians here that have recently ordered, had it delivered in reasonable time frames and can comment as to who and what method of shipping used.


I don't need anything badly enough to wait 2+ months. I would rather just spend double and buy it at home if that is the case.

It's a crapshoot right now. I order from Somewhere Else, since no CC here and my epacket stuffs came in a month but everything else is two months or more, regardless of shipper.

Jeezuz, if it doesn't get better, due to the amount of refunds, sellers are gonna stop shipping to Canada, soon. :(

There you go:

Canada Post Update



Status of the Network



Canadians should anticipate parcel delays for the foreseeable future, even as Canada Post delivers at record levels. As consumers continue to ramp up and diversify their online shopping, we’re responding to unprecedented parcel volumes, while maintaining important physical distancing measures in all our facilities. Processing record parcel volumes in plants that were never designed to keep people two metres apart takes more time.



We’re delivering in record numbers and also handling a wider variety of items. With parcel deliveries growing at a record pace from April to May, we hit an all-time, one-day record on Tuesday, May 19, with 2.1 million parcels delivered to Canadians. That’s roughly three times the norm for this time of year. It’s not just the volumes that are causing challenges. The number of larger, heavier items, which often require a two-person lift, creates additional safety challenges and delays.



We’re taking steps to respond, while maintaining physical distancing. That includes processing and delivering on weekends and additional support from trained temporary employees. Also, some parcels may be transferred to other Canada Post locations for processing based on capacity. While this last step reduces delays, customers tracking their items may notice that their parcels are taking a different route than normal.



All of our processing facilities across the country are at capacity and facing some challenges with backlog that are creating significant delays. We’re reaching out to some commercial customers in Montréal and in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), and implementing some short-term restrictions to help manage our backlog situation.



Based on this information, please set expectations of delays with your respective customers. Our employees are working hard to serve and we’ll continue to keep customers updated on our progress. We’re also being proactive in sharing this information with Canadians through the media, social media and banners at canadapost.ca.



Thanks

Yah I'm waiting on an order from January 13th. Understandable delay so it got shipped March 6th via ePacket. Apparently it left China on March 8th. Nothing since. Another order I made at the end of March still hasn't shown up either. It's still reasonably late but late none the less.

I'm kinda at my limit of "please be patient"'s
At no point in Trump's rambling, incoherent 1 term presidency was there anything close to what could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the country is now dumber for having experienced it.
