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.
- For International parcels: Right now, there are delays of up to several weeks for parcels arriving from other countries, but the delays should diminish gradually through December and into the new year. However, it may be March before Canada Post will meet normal delivery standards. 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.
