Some items do have shipping costs already included in the product price which may be noted on the individual product page.

Items shipped outside Canada/USA will be charged a minimum flat shipping, handling and processing fee of $29.99 CAD, but all international orders are reviewed on an individual basis and may be subject to higher shipping charges (often substantially higher depending on the package and destination). Orders being shipped outside of Canada/USA must clear a standard security check with our payment processor and in many cases will require an method of payment other than a credit card. If this is the case with your international order, you will be contacted by a representative prior to processing/shipping with additional information
Some items in our catalogue are particularly heavy or large (e.g. bulk liquids/foods, appliances, cookware, water filtration systems, water filters, fermentation crocks, exercise equipment, mattresses). Depending on the physical size of your order and shipping location, our free or flat S&H policies may not apply in some cases. In the event your order is particularly large or requires specific shipping arrangements, we will research the available options and contact you so you can choose the method that best suits your needs, prior to processing the order.
In some cases, we are unable to honour our flat rates or free shipping if your order is being shipped to a particularly rural or remote location, or areas that incur higher than normal delivery costs (e.g. the Canadian North). If you live in a remote region that requires additional shipping, you'll be contacted with additional information prior to order processing. These shipping policies are to ensure that we can find the most economical method to ship orders for both Aviva and our customers.
For any Canadian or U.S. order, other shipping arrangements may be made with customer service, if required. Delivery times will depend on the specific order, method of shipping, and location. Please contact us if you have questions about shipping for any order.
In the unlikely event of a lost package: orders within Canada and USA can be traced. After 30 business days, if it has been determined that your shipment has been lost, you may request a refund, or ask Aviva to re-ship the product to you.
Shipping for all other international orders will be handled on a case-by-case basis. International orders, including shipments to the USA, may be subject to import duties and/or taxes upon reaching the destination country. Any additional charges are the responsibility of the addressee, as Aviva has no control over any foreign duty or additional taxes charged. Also, with regards to Customs, many of the food products offered by Aviva require substantial processing in order to get clearance into other countries (particularly the United States, where clearance from the FDA and prior notice with US Customs are required). In most cases we will not be able to process these types of food item sales outside of Canada.
In most cases, we are not able to ship shoes outside of Canada. Insoles, socks and other similar footwear products are available for international shipping, but shoes cannot be shipped internationally (including to the United States).
Please note that order shipments returned to Aviva due to incomplete/incorrect postal information, refusal to accept delivery, failure to pay import taxes or custom duties, or refused entry by customs may be subject to a 20% restocking fee and return shipping costs. Aviva cannot process a refund if a shipment is misdelivered or lost due to incorrect address information entered.
In-store returns for most like-new items are normally accepted within 30 days; please contact us for additional details.
Footwear may be returned for size exchange if worn indoors only for fitting purposes and in new condition within 7 days.
Product pricing is listed by default in Canadian funds. American customers may use the built in currency converter to display approximate USD pricing, but all orders are processed in Canadian dollars. USD pricing shown is an approximation based on the exchange rate made available electronically to Aviva. If you are an American (or located in any country other than Canada), your actual exchange rate will be set by your credit card carrier and may be different than the rate used to display approximate USD pricing on our site.
Sales Taxes: All Canadian residents are subject to GST (the Goods and Services Tax), and the residents of some provinces (e.g. Manitoba) are subject to both the GST and PST (Provincial Sales Tax), while others are subject to the HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) if that is currently implemented in their province. Taxes are not charged for residents of the United States or other residents outside of Canada, with the rare exception of delivery originating from an in-state service provider.
We accept payment by Visa or Mastercard for orders shipped within Canada and the USA. We also accept Interac e-Transfer (Canada only -- must be arranged with customer service), wire transfer (must be pre-arranged), Canadian or INTERNATIONAL money order (must be negotiable in Canada, and must be arranged with customer service first). Orders from avivahealth.com are securely sent to Aviva where they are reviewed. Once your order and S&H have been verified, your payment will be processed and your order shipped.
Please note we do not accept payment by PayPal, Visa Debit or by unregistered Visa or MasterCard gift cards. Online use of gift cards requires the registered address match the shipping address.
Aviva carries many products that are unique and not available elsewhere in Canada. We strive to offer low prices on our entire catalogue of items. If you see a lower price on a specific product at another Canadian site, please contact us, we'll look into it and do our best to match it. The nature of the web does however lead to some circumstances where we find that we cannot price match all products. Because we are a Canadian retailer, we may not be able to compete directly with American online retailers, but we can offer faster and duty/import-free shipments (also many US offerings are not approved for sale in Canada).
Pricing and product offerings are subject to change at any time.
