Canada Post is working to stabilize operations after the end of the rotating strikes. They are currently facing unprecedented backlogs which will cause delivery delays for the next several weeks.
Current shipping outlook:
- For parcels: Deliveries will continue to be delayed during the peak holiday season and into January 2019. Existing backlogs are expected to worsen this week due to high volumes from Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.
- For International parcels: Delays are likely to stretch into March of 2019. International items will require screening by the Canada Border Services Agency. We are working in partnership with them to manage the significant existing backlog.
Once Canada Post receives mail or parcels from customers, it is processing and delivering on a first-in, first-out basis.
