Every company has their own rules. I know nothing about Canada but in the US, for example, you can ship fish via USPS but with FedEx you can only ship to a residence (no Hold at Location) and you cannot ship from a FedEx Office.
Of course, if you never tell them what you're shipping and they don't inspect it will be processed.
I hope your fish arrive soon and well.

Well they knew what they were shipping and were shipping it xD so they're still at fault lol :3 and I've never heard of anyone in cnaada who has gotten fish shipped that were told it was illegal.

I wonder if canada post thinks that bettas, and such fish, came to canada by walking?

Border Officer: "can I see your passport?"
Red betta: "Awww man! You said we didn't need one!"
Blue betta: "Well we didn't five years ago!"

(thus bettas fought from then on? xD)

I didn't know that's how they became so aggressive towards each other. :D

Here is the info on undeliverable mail from the canada post manual:

It's going to be very cold tonight down by me. Hope it isn't going to be so bad up there. Fishies probably have heat packs, but don't know how long they last.

Hey can the person you bought the fish from complain to the post office too?

yeah she put a heat pack in there. But since Tuesday...it's probably cold by now.
She's calling canada post about the item shipped, tomorrow, if I tell her I did not receive them tonight. Tomorrow my friend and I are going downtown to the post office, I'm getting my money back, AND if my package is there I want that too. It's late shipping, causing a lot of problems and stress.

On a side note, bettas are NOT illegal to ship in canada. at leats not ontario and alberta.

Okay, well FINALLY they got my fish to camrose. I still don't have them but I am picking them up - NOT relying on a delivery. My shipper even said she looked up everything, and no where does it say it is illegal to ship fish anywhere in canada, asides from certain ones like poisonous, or actually illegal - which may include rare/endangered species that need permits to own and breed.

So today I'll be getting them! So now I'll make the dividers, we'll get them, and I go to work at 2pm lol.

But they're still going to hear about the "overnight shipping" bogus and the "fish are illegal to ship" lies.

Nice! I hope they are ok when you get them!!! File a complaint with both the canada post and that ombudsmans (?) office though. That isn't right that because of one persons stupidity a live animal should suffer. The people working in the post should know the laws and rules before they start a process rolling on a parcel.

I told a few family members about your problem and we were all worried about your fish. I can't wait to see them once they are all settled in, poor things.
