Situated between the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans, Canada is the world’s second largest country, after Russia. Such large distances may make Canada seem like an unreachable destination but at DHL, we take such distances in our stride. When sending important documents or parcels to a vast country like Canada, it’s important to use a name you can trust. That’s why DHL is the perfect choice.

And along with our door-to-door service, parcels are signed for on delivery ensuring your package reaches its destination safely.
