Can you send a package to Canada via Priority Mail or that is a U.S. only service?
(Just wondering because I would like to use the free boxes.)

I don't think you can. Do what I do, turn the boxes inside out

just make all the fold backwards, works like a charm.

Ask your post office if they do Canada Post XpressPost. That's our functional equivalent of Priority, and a lot of US post offices'll do it.

I have sent a priority letter to canada before and basically I believe it's the USPS delivering it Priority Mail to the Canadian side, which then takes over for it. However, it's still can be slow as hell as a letter I was sending to a person in Toronto from the NYC area, took like 2 weeks to get there. I actually called USPS about it and that's what they told me. USPS has no say over how Canada delivers it after it gets to the border so who knows how quick or how Canada treats USPS priority mail... YMMV and all that stuff....

P.S. I should say this was around the middle of december so perhaps the Xmas rush was on but still, 2 weeks is way too long for a letter to go from NYC to Toronto... which is just over the border.
