Tracking number: what is it and where to find it

Tracking numbers are usually provided by the sender - online shop or seller. The tracking numbers are also visible on the package in the form of digits and letters and also as a barcode that allows postal services to scan parcels and update its location and status.

There are two types of tracking numbers: tracking numbers that are 16 digits only (for example, 46572876354190001) and tracking numbers of 13 digits and characters (for example, RU374802489CN).

Please note that only the sender (online store or seller) can provide you with the tracking number for your package. Canada Post does not give information on tracking numbers based on recipient’s name or address or any other contact information. If you have a problem with finding the correct tracking number for your package - please contact customer support of the online store or seller at the marketplace that ships your package.

Cannot find tracking number for the package I sent

For Canada Post packages the tracking number is usually 11 or 13 digits that end with characters CA, or 16 digits only.

You can find the tracking number of your package at the bottom of your tracking receipt for any package sent with Canada Post Priority, Xpresspost or Regular Parcel shipping method.

If you send your package to the USA or internationally, then you receive an additional copy of the shipping label that will have a tracking number for the package.

In case you use any of pre-paid Canada Post services and do not ship your package at the time of purchase - the tracking number for your parcel will not be present on your receipt.

Unfortunately, for privacy reasons the Canada Post never provides tracking numbers based on information about the sender or recipient - so there’s no way they will be able to give you this information if you ask them to look your package up. The tracking numbers for parcels are available only on receipts or on the shipping labels.

I am the recipient of the package. How can I find the tracking number for it?

Most sellers or online stores provide you with tracking numbers once the package is shipped to you. If not - you can contact customer service or the seller to request the tracking information. For all online purchases there’s usually automatic shipping confirmation emails with all the shipping information available.

I’ve sent a package. Where’s the tracking information for it?

For any local (domestic) deliveries Canada Post uses tracking numbers that consist of 16 digits. This rule does not apply to pre-paid letters and shipping labels. Please check your receipt or copy of the shipping label for tracking information.

For any pre-paid letters or labels, as well as packages to the USA or international mail, Canada Post uses tracking numbers that consist of 13 characters that are digits and letters. These tracking numbers can be found on your receipt and shipping label copy as well.

What is a reference number?

Reference numbers are usually numbers for the orders in the system of a seller or online shop. These numbers are used by the sended to keep track of their packages before they are passed on to shipping companies. Please do not confuse reference number and tracking number, as tracking numbers are unique and assigned by shipping service, and reference numbers as assigned by shops or sellers and may be similar to the reference number of other shops or sellers.

If you are using a reference number to track your package - please use date range to narrow down the search. The results will be shown only for the reference numbers active during the specified search dates.
