Frequently Asked Questions
How do I order a pack for my child?
To order online, go to www.creativepacks.ca. Alternatively, if your child’s school has decided to use paper order forms, a form will be sent home via the school to fill out. If you did not receive a form or you were not notified by the school to order online, do not worry! We accept online orders year round to make sure that your child has the supplies they need for school. Due to high call volumes, we cannot take orders over the phone between August 1st and September 30th.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are ordering online for multiple students you will have to place each order separately. Every student gets a tracking and order number to ensure quick resolution should there be any issues with or questions about your Creative Pack.
Will my pack ship to the school or home?
If you were charged a shipping fee and received a tracking number your order will ship to your home. Please allow for 5 to 10 business days for delivery via Canada Post, depending on your location. All other packs will ship to the school in bulk (free shipping) and arrive when the school has chosen, usually at the start of school.
When will we receive the Packs?
Canada Post: For those who received a tracking number your pack will arrive between 5 - 10 business days. Track your package here.
