To Send a Letter to Canada, How Many Stamps Are Required?

It’s likely that you’ve wondered what mail to Canada costs if you have friends or relatives in the Canadian provinces or farther north in the United States. The number of stamps required to mail a letter to Canada is so. Letters to Canada typically require three ordinary postal stamps.

Forever Stamps, sometimes referred to as first-class letter rate stamps, will cost 55 cents apiece starting in 2021. This indicates that the cost of postage to Canada for a single letter is roughly $1.65.

However, it’s also crucial to remember that the USPS now charges $1.20 for first-class letters delivered to Canada or Mexico. Although three Forever Stamps would cover this, you would still be 45 cents out of pocket.

To pay the debt without overpaying or exhausting your Forever Stamps, you can purchase stamps in smaller denominations, such four-cent stamps, if you wish to save some change.

Additionally, you can pay the precise amount if you’re willing to ship your letter immediately from the post office. This could be the most economical choice if you frequently send mail to Canada.
