My SIL sent a huge box of maternity clothes to me, on a regular greyhound bus. She said that it was the cheapest way she could find to send it. I'd never heard of anyone shipping parcels that way before, so I'll admit it was kind of weird to head to the bus station to pick up my package. I have no idea how much it cost her (sent from Vancouver to Ottawa), but it's something you could look into.

I've used greyhound many times. They are faster than Canada Post ground. And usually cheaper for enormous packages. But only to places they travel, of course. Look up greyhound courier. But depending on what you're sending (weight, size, destination), it may not be the cheapest.
Canada Post has 3 forms of mail (one is a courier), and depending on the size, weight, and destination, they vary in price, so that it sometimes is even cheaper to send things via their faster methods than the slow way.

If it's small - Canada post
If it's big - Greyhound
