I know I have brought this up years ago, but with postal rates increasing, I thought it might be worth putting out there again.
You can sign up for a Canada Post Solutions for Small Business discount plan online. It's free, and you don't need to be an actual company to get one.
You get a discount on parcels shipped at the post office, and an larger discount if you buy the shipping label online. They upgrade regular parcel to expedited as well.

Also, if you are in a rural area, 20% off until the end of the year.

There wasn't a link, if you qualified they sent an email to the email address registered to the account.

Discount code "Rural2022"
*This offer is exclusive to Solutions for Small Business members who have been identified by Canada Post as rural/remote. Members are eligible to receive 20% off base prices for Priority™, Xpresspost™, Expedited Parcel™ and Regular Parcel™ within Canada between June 13, 2022 and December 31, 2022. Promo accessible through applicable Canada Post shipping tools. This offer does not apply to options, fuel or other surcharges, or any applicable duties or taxes. Some conditions and exceptions may apply.

Unfortunately with the obscene fuel surcharge even with the discount small parcels are often still cheaper to be sent via a flat rate box.

Yes, I received an email back in August about it. Didn't ship anything until 2 weeks ago, but it did save a couple of bucks...
