Default Canadians-- do 5x5 cards need extra postage?

I'm just sending to someone within Canada. TIA!

Well, I won't guarantee it, but as far as I could figure from the CP website, NO, they shouldn't need extra postage (unless it's really heavy). I looked it up a long time ago because I did the square card swap, but I haven't actually tried to mail one yet.

We have a chart at work, and it seems that postage for mail that is sent to Canada and other international countries go by weight and not size, as some of the restrictions are here in the States.

I'm not sure if it is different for mail coming from the US but for mail within Canada it does go by size (even thickness) and weight. Unfortunately I dont know if the 5 x 5 would fall into the range of requiring more postage though, sorry.

Usually square envies require extra postage regardless of destination.

I seem to remember reading that so long as the sides did not exceed some maximum, square envies were ok...off to try and look that up....

Okie, so an envelope qualifies as Standard Post if it is between 14.0 and 24.5 cm long, 9.0 and 15.6 cm wide, and a maximum of 0.5 cm thick. So you could send a 15 cm by 15 cm card in a 15.5 square envelope no problemo. A 5"x5" card is 12.7 cm square, so is not quite long enough to meet the length requirement.

Here is the link in case you are interested in more specifics.
