Most items ship via standard services with Canada Post. The service used is fixed by product so you are not able to request one postal service over another. Some of our products are Fulfilled by Amazon in order to take advantage of their shipping infrastructure and speed of delivery to our customers. Expedited shipping is not available. Large orders may contact customer service prior to ordering.


Most of our items ship directly from the U'mista Cultural Centre located in Alert Bay, British Columbia. Should your order not ship within number of business days expected or go on backorder, we will notify you.

Please note that number of days shown are estimates based on the usual and are not a guarantee. Also please note that shipment times noted reflect expected number of business days until the product ships. Your estimated delivery date will depend upon ship to location. 


We will provide tracking information via email for each item on your order the day following shipment. 


Delivery times are dependent upon your location and the location. Generally you can expect for your order to be in transit 1-3 business days.
