Shipping Information

*During the COVID-19 Outbreak, shipping times may be slightly longer than usual. We appreciate your understanding.

Shipping within Canada

Avalanche Safety Solutions ships via Purolator (Ground) and Canada Post.  If your purchase qualifies for Free Shipping (and you don’t select a paid option), we will determine which method we will ship by.

All orders over $100 (before tax) qualify for Free Shipping.  However, due to a huge surcharge from Shipping companies, we do charge $25 for the shipment of full (charged) canisters.  Wherever possible, we have given you the option to select an empty canister to avoid this charge, but have also tried to keep this Dangerous Goods Shipping Fee to be less than the cost of re-filling the cylinder once received.

All orders under $100 have their shipping costs auto-calculated by Shipping companies.  This cost will be reflected in your order.

We ship to the address you provide us and provide tracking information for your package.  After it leaves our warehouse, it leaves our control and any tracking or loss of the package is not our responsibility.

After your order is processed, you will receive an email with a tracking number for your purchase. Occasionally, if your purchase is very small (i.e. burst discs), we mail ship it via Canada Post Lettermail, in which case no tracking number is available.

Shipping to the USA

It is our goal to provide the same great service to our customers in the USA.  However, please note that though we are unable to provide Free Shipping, we go to great lengths to ensure you are receiving the lowest possible charges.

Please note that Avalanche Safety Solutions is not responsible for any customs fees or duties that you may be charged on your purchase.  These fees are not charged by Avalanche Safety Solutions or are they part of Shipping Fees.  It is the customer’s responsibility to pay these charges.  Avalanche Safety Solutions is unable to provide you with estimates as to how much these charges will be!

Avalanche Safety Solutions is unable to ship full canisters for Avalanche Airbags across the border. You may receive two separate shipments in this case (i.e. Avalanche Airbag from Canadian warehouse, cylinder from US warehouse).

Unfortunately, we are unable to sell BCA products outside of Canada.  Any order for BCA products placed to ship to the USA will be cancelled and refunded.

Shipping to Other Countries

Our on-line store does not allow shipments to countries outside of North America, but if possible, we will make arrangements with you to do so. Please email us at to see if international shipping is available to you.
