Container Shipping Dates

The normal times to receive boxes at the MSC Canada warehouse in Markham is during the three weeks after Easter and the three weeks after Thanksgiving. During these times, ACCTS volunteers will be available to help unload your goods. For your convenience, boxes can also be dropped off throughout the year at MSC Canada anytime during their business hours. Please be prepared to unload by yourself in such cases, although the office staff may be able to assist you.

Containers are loaded and shipped from 2 locations in Canada – Portage la Prairie, Manitoba and Markham, Ontario. The suggested donation to cover the cost of shipping a standard ACCTS box to Africa is $35 at Portage and $30 at Markham.
