OTTAWA, ONT. (WIVB)
The price of mailing a letter in Canada has just gone up 37-percent.
The Canada Post raised the price of purchasing individual stamps effective Monday to $1 for a single stamp.
You can still purchase stamps in a booklet for 85-cents, but even that is up from 63 cents.
The national postal service said the increases were necessary because of the declining volume of letter mail.
Most businesses will pay 75-cents per standard letter.
