Shipping Fee

Effective Fall 2022 semester, there will be a shipping charge of $15 + tax on all orders shipped within Canada. If there are additional shipping charges above this rate, you will be contacted to add the cost that pertains to your province. Please use your civic address and proper postal code when ordering, as UPS does not deliver to PO Boxes. Applicable shipping charges for International destinations is also listed under 'Shipping Options' when placing your order.

Important to Note

If your course is not listed, it is because your instructor has not yet ordered a textbook. If your instructor has chosen not to use a textbook you will see the message "No Textbook Required to Purchase for this Course and Section"

If there is no price with the textbook, or it states "Out of Stock", it is because The Mount Bookstore has not yet received the textbook and the cost is not known. Please check back.
