USPS does not calculate shipping rates from Canada to Canada.
  1. Log in into your EasyPost account.
  2. Go to EasyPost > Account > Carriers.
  3. Select carrier you want to integrate with.

The new carrier should be available almost immediately after you save your carrier settings and refresh the checkout page.
