We can ship to Canada (requires customer to pay for shipping) but cannot ship internationally. In addition, as we cover the cost of shipping on all orders of $125 or more, the buyer will be responsible for shipping any products back for a return/replacement. We do not accept returns or exchanges on items that are not lost, stolen, or damaged.
