Want to get your mail across the pond? Here’s everything you need to know

In terms of figures, Canada’s economy is the 10th largest (nominal) and the 15th largest (PPP) when it is compared to the other countries of the world. As such, it is one of the wealthiest economies around.

Canada has strong economic principles, a strong economic outlook, and its open-market policies mean that trade is strong, both in and out of the country. Furthermore, its economy has been growing over the last few months. It currently has a relatively small population when compared to other large world economies, with a population of around 35 million.

Canada has sought to reduce the amount of spam emails and texts citizens receive over the last few years, and as such there has been an increased interest in the use of direct mail as an alternative. We have explained in more detail below how you can make use of international mail services to Canada.
