Shipping Delays: We are not responsible for shipping delays. Once orders are dropped off at Canada Post, packages are literally out of our hands and we have no more access to tracking than what the customer has. During Holiday times when we have large quantities of orders, our packages are not scanned at the Courtenay branch, rather they are scanned (typically) at the sorting facility in Richmond the next day. Holiday season 2020 was unusual (highest volume of packages ever) and many packages were not scanned at all until delivery, resulting in no tracking whatsoever. Frustrating customers and businesses alike. If you encounter any shipping delay, use this link to submit a service ticket direct with Canada Post, as we unfortunately, are unable to do anything to assist you.

In cases when we are oversold on products and the order cannot be fulfilled, Totem Design House reserves the right to cancel the order and issue an immediate refund to the customer.
