    My recent experience seems to have been the opposite. I shipped a small padded envelope from Ontario to Poland, and it was half the price of shipping a similar padded envelope to Calgary. I find it all very confusing.

    For basic air service (non-express), Canada is pretty reasonable.
    A small packet (needs to be less than 2cm deep and max 500g) is $5.09 to anywhere in the world. $2.60 to the US.

    For a deeper item, the key is to make sure it is at least 14x9x1 cm. For a usual Oakley box, it is smaller than that. If you hit that dimension, it's about $8 to the US and $13 internationally.

    *Both of the above are for basic service with no tracking/signature. Anything express from Canada is BEYOND expensive. $25 minimum for US and double that internationally.

    I guess the difference is that Canada Post is taking advantage of their monopoly.
