Shipping costs to Canada from US

I'm trying to get some straight answers about shipping costs. I've tried repeated emails to the US Postal Service's help desk, but have not received any responses.

I'm planning to place an order with a supplier in Pennsylvania, to be shipped to Canada. The quoted price from the US supplier is US$33, which includes the supplier's shipping charges. The package to be shipped to me is 15"x15"x15", approximately 12 pounds. Shipping is via USPS Ground.

What type of brokerage fees can I expect to pay?

Have them send USPS. I would say 98% of the time Canada POST& USPS do not take the time to deal with broker fees on small amounts and just send em thru..At least that has been our experience in the last 21 years.
