Hmm I actually don’t know? I know that if you’re mailing to the US you need extra postage and I’ve purchased “US” stamps before because of this. They were through Canada post though and not the US postal service. I think if you are sending them Canada post you will need stamps purchased from Canada post. Good question though because I’m not 100% sure…

Yes ma’am! You’ll need Canada Post stamps to put on your return envelopes ($1.03 US stamps). Honestly, for my out of country RSVPs I didn’t put postage on them because it was too much of a headache and no one complained. It was only a couple of people.

I don’t think you can. You are supposed to use postage that’s from the country you’re mailing from. So if you’re mailing from LA to Toronto, US stamps. Vancouver to LA, Canadian stamps. 

I’m pretty sure that’s how it works but I could be wrong. 

I don’t think they’ll be on strike for too long, the rotational strikes were almost 2 weeks long already. 

ETA: I have no idea if I understood your question. lol

I am Canadian and you are supposed to use the stamps from where you are sending them from just go to the post office and find out how much it costs to send to where you want them to go and say it is 62 cents  if I were sending it to the U.S I would put one of our 59 cent stamps with 3 of our 1 cent stamps as well on the envelope… But always from the country you are sending from. Hope this helps.

Canadian stamps are required for mail going form Canada to the US.

American stamps are required for the RSVP’s to be mailed form the US back to Canada.

If you can’t get or don’t want to get US stamps for the RSVP’s, I know your guests will understand.
