Price hike in effect: $1 for a single first-class stamp Add to ...

The cost of mailing a first-class letter within Canada is going up today — by 35 per cent.

Canada Post is raising the price of a stamp to 85-cents, up from 63-cents.

While the new price applies when buying stamps in bulk, it will cost $1 to buy a single first-class stamp.

Canada Post says permanent stamps, which are marked “p” will continue to be accepted even though they were bought at the lower price.
