Company Description

Chit Chats’ vision is to help Canadian entrepreneurs deliver their goods to the world with postage at unbelievable prices. We are a fast-growing entrepreneurial company making a huge impact to Canadian businesses.  As e-commerce removes borders, we don’t want high Canadian postal rates to be a barrier to world commerce. We aim to remove these physical and price borders to create a seamless, borderless and boundless world of opportunity for Canadians.

Chit Chats' values are not just words we put on our office walls.  They guide our success and reflect who we are. We look to our values to ensure the right fit and we choose candidates who embody these principles over those who simply have the technical skills and experience required.
