Declared Value

Gain peace of mind when shipping your domestic and international packages


UPS's liability is limited to CAD$100.00 on packages with no declared value. If the value of your goods exceeds CAD$100.00, you can declare a higher value, up to CAD$50,000.00 per package, by entering the declared value in the UPS shipping system used and paying an additional charge. Declared Value charges for freight collect and third-party shipments may be billed to your shipper account. For more information, refer to

When a shipper declares a value in excess of $100, it does not receive any form of insurance. Insurance for in-transit goods is available through UPS’s licensed affiliate UPS Capital Insurance Agency, Inc.

Note: International air shipments may be governed by the Warsaw Convention, including its limitations of liability. Charges for declared value can be billed to the shipper (Prepaid), the receiver (Freight Collect), or to a third party (Bill Third Party).
