Hi, Rhea - yes we have quite a few Canadians (Some very successful)in this program. I have one member on my team from Ontario. Start up costs are 39.95 US Candle of the Month autoship order (no sign up fees) or you can sign up as an Associate as well. Associates don't get the same discounts, but it is free to join and you can always upgrade.

The candle of the month is optional, but for only 39.95 US( + t/s)you receive a website, 1 16oz jar candle, 1 doz votive candles, and 1 Bella Bath Bar.There are no sales quotas. The discount/commission is50% off, plus the residual income is fantastic!

We have the following Canadian Provinces available:

Ontario, Alberta, Prince Edward Island, British Columbia, and Saskatchawan.

I started this business in August and it has gone really well for me. The candles arehigh quality, burn cleaner and longer than anything that I have tried.

Feel free to PM me for more information or visit my website- I would love to send you a packet of more detailed information. Or feel free to call 888-636-5115.

Take Care!

Hi Rhea:

I have given you a reply below from one of our most successful couple in Canada. There are quite a few Canadians doing this business with great success.

"The Candle of the Month package costs us about $70 per month in Cdn funds. You might think that seems high, but with the extra shipping cost and also the taxes and exchange, it's still reasonable.

You can easily retail the 16oz jar candle in the COTM for $25 (Cdn) and the votives for $4 each (Cdn) or $48 (Cdn) for the dozen... so that alone comes to $73 (Cdn) that you could recover if you add your COTM products to your saleable (sellable?) inventory. Of course you also have a Bella bar and your website included in that....

We include our COTM package as a tax write-off becasue we view them as our monthly "samples"... we often give some of the votives out as free samples."

I'm a Canadian Rep. I live in Alberta. My COTM costs me about 65.00. I sell my jars for 25CDN. I usually pass out my votives to friends or grate them down as scent samples. I had 2 cases of candles before christmas and without doing alot of advertising, alot of people found out about my candles and I sold out of most of my jars. Everyone loves how they smell and how even they burn.

I haven't really pushed the business side yet but I am getting ready to do a party for my sister.

Bottom line, if you love candles then it's easy to sell them!
