6-7 weeks. It could be lost too in a worst case scenario . Ask ur college to send it via courier and pay courier charges by a credit card. U will get it in 4 days.

It does not matter. Tell them regular mail never arrive at home and can easily be lost in transit. It happened to me before.

Tell them that you are willing to pay courier charges. Then, they will send you a dhl canada address where you can arrange your shipment to be picked from college by paying courier charges online.

you see, 6 weeks was a timeline given by a cad university to me . it has been three months now. No regular mail arrived at home. I was smart enough to smell a rat and told them to send it by a courier.  I got it in 4 days.

I'm from Pakistan.

My experience :
Canada Post (Ordinary) - Montreal to New Delhi - 9 days (LOR) and 10 days (CAQ)
DHL Express (Delhi<-->Canada) - 5 to 7 days

Thanks for your inputs guys. i received my letter today.
Approximately 10 days. Posted on 12th, reached my home on 22nd.

Great news. Seems like every thing is fast paced between India and Canada. Visa processing takes days. International Mail delivery takes days. etc

No idea why it is snail paced for Pakistan?
