UPDATE 3:06 pm

I have just heard from Alexander's (the company taking over MyCanvas) and they WILL ship to Canadians! Here is part of their email to Olive Tree Genealogy just a few minutes ago:

"We're happy to let you know the service will remain available and that we will provide access to those in Canada as well as ship the books to Canadian addresses."

For those who were not aware of this, we Canadians could not use MyCanvas as Ancestry would not ship to us. This is wonderful news!

This is fantastic news. The books you could create with MyCanvas were beautiful and now to know that they will ship to Canada, that's a double bonus!! Doing a happy dance!
