Expedited Service Turnaround

Warranty Repairs: Canon will repair and ship from our factory service the eligible product (see list above) that is repairable, in Canon's reasonable discretion, within 6 business days of receipt of the equipment at our service facility in Mississauga.

Out of warranty repairs: The turnaround period will commence once payment of applicable charges has been received by Canon CPS staff. Please see the section covering 'flat rate repair charges' below.

Service Discount

Student CPS members receive a 20% discount (parts and labour) on eligible products.

Service Shipping Charges

Student CPS members receive subsidized incoming overnight shipping charges ($10) when eligible product shipments are identified using our CPS shipping waybill. These charges will be added to the repair service charge. Return shipping is free for warranty repairs and a flat $10 fee will be charged for return shipping of out of warranty service.

Restricted Service List

The restricted list covers current professional product that is covered by the Student CPS service plan. Parts availability is assured for these products in order to reduce service turnaround delays. Products not on this list will not be covered by the Student CPS service turnaround guidelines nor will they be eligible for flat rate service.

No Minimum Camera & Lens Requirements

Eligibility is not dependent upon any minimum requirements on camera and lens ownership.

Flat Rate Repair Pricing

Flat rate repair pricing has been established for all eligible products to reduce the amount of contact necessary between Canon and its members during the service episode. Flat rates cover all labour and parts necessary to complete repair. Flat rate charges related to the repair of eligible products received for service will be automatically applied however in the event the product requires extensive service, such as, but not limited to, moisture or extensive impact damage, a manual estimate including parts and labour will be provided or full replacement will be applied. Manual estimates can be available upon request but will not be eligible for service turnaround targets. Manual estimates may be subject to estimate charges and return shipping charges if refused by the member.
