On shipping, the cost of US Postal Service is probably the lowest, followed by the ground shipping by Fedex and UPS, and then overnight shipment from the couriers. USPS and courier ground shipment can be very slow. Shipping from the US West coast to Ottawa may take 10 days or longer. You need to balance the cost and delivery time.
