To ensure accurate delivery and for us to guarantee your order, please make sure that ALL the following information is included:

Your full name 
The name of the school, facility or business location (if applicable)
Valid phone number (in case of emergency)
Valid Email
Physical Address (PO boxes are unacceptable)

*If you are aware that you live in a location no couriers deliver to, please contact us directly! We can find a Purolator or Fedex broker nearby who will take the parcel on your behalf. 

Keep in mind that we are shipping live animals. As such, our shipping requirements may be different from what you are used to. Ensure you read the entirety of our shipping policy before you order.

Please be aware that we cannot ship to a PO box. 


Butterfly Wings N' Wishes Ltd will guarantee live animals throughout shipping as long as shipping losses are reported within 24 hours of receiving your parcel. It is important that the information you have provided is correct on your invoice; please review all paperwork to ensure accurate delivery.

Some exceptions may apply; please review the following: 

Once you have placed your order, you will receive an emailed confirmation within 1-4 days; this is your opportunity to review your shipping information. Please do so carefully, to ensure we have all your details correct! These little living animals are important, and they need to get to the right place on time. Butterfly Wings N' Wishes cannot be held responsible for shipment delay or failure due to incorrect information on the invoice. We check everything as carefully as we can, but when we have higher than usual order volumes, mistakes can of course slip through (we`re all human after all!). 


- Orders are shipped on Mondays, with the exception of live adult butterflies for special events (these are shipped directly in advance of your event). We do not offer shipping on other days of the week for most products. 

- We ship priority overnight with Fedex, Purolator, or UPS depending on the location of the recipient. Shipping times vary depending on the courier, so we select the quickest on a case-by-case basis to ensure efficiency. All orders are shipped priority overnight, and in most cases will arrive within 1-2 business days, depending on your location in Canada. If you are located in a particularly remote region, it may take an extra business day or so (review the following)

-Combination shipping is available at no extra cost for multiple orders going to the same destination on the same date. Just let us know!

- Live animals are shipped weather permitting. Should the temperatures be on the cooler or warmer side, we will take measures to ensure your animals are appropriately cared for.

We cannot guarantee shipping without all correct information being included. Phone numbers are especially important, because if something goes wrong with your order, we will need to be able to contact you immediately. If one or more information fields are inaccurate, our couriers may be delayed or prevented from delivering your order: missing information slows the drivers down. In such cases, the following may apply:

  • Application of adjustment fees if your order is delivered to the wrong location
  • Application of reship fees should your order need to be reshipped to you/a new order sent out in replacement

The welfare of our animals is of utmost importance and we consider their safe handling a priority.
