iPad 1 battery replacement

My son has an ipad 1 in need of a battery replacement. Apple USA apparently replaces the ipad with a new or refurbished one for $99 plus shipping but I have been unable to get an answer from Apple.ca if that same service is available in Canada. I'm not too keen on paying $35 for a 'NO' answer.

Can anyone tell me if the replacement is offered in Canada and if not, can this unit be shipped to the US for replacement? Any help is sincerely appreciated

From Apple's Canada site:

iPad Owners
Your one-year warranty includes replacement coverage for a defective battery. If it is out of warranty, Apple offers a battery replacement for $99, plus $10.77 shipping, subject to local tax. Apple disposes of your battery in an environmentally friendly manner.

Backup your iPad before sending it in for a "battery replacement" - battery replacement means they're replacing the iPad entirely with a refurbished, same-generation iPad.
