When I have sold on eBay, the shipping charges to Canada always turned 
out to be extremely high and usually pretty complicated to figure out. A 
$20 USD part that I could mail to Hawaii in 2-3 days for $8 sometimes 
ended up costing $32 plus the extra paperwork involved. People north of 
the border thought I was trying to cheat them when I was not. I'd 
suggest that anyone who is interested in this simply go to the USPS or 
UPS or FexEx or DHL sites and check it out by pricing out a make believe 
package and see what numbers you get. I don't know why the postage and 
transportation situation between the USA and Canada is such a mess. 
Might have been caused by those people who used to run the World 
Bank...  ;-)
