Nova Express is a not-so-large courier company located in Vancouver, BC with an interesting history. It recently changed its name from Dwarf Courier, see its history there.

Nova Express' logo is a "ripoff" of FedEx, written as NovEx and with nearly the same color scheme.

Nova Express declared bankruptcy on January 15, 2000, but was bought by a third party company after its Vancouver Island assets were liquidated.

Nova Express specializes in overnight deliveries but will provide same-day service to its more popular customers. As they are not a multinational company, they utilize other couriers (namely UPS and Purolator) for international and out-of-BC deliveries.
Though this is merely my opinion, many others share it. NovEx is over-priced and the service is low-rate. There are many other couriers in Vancouver that are a better bet.
