To our valued customers


Canada Post has continued to work hard throughout the year to deliver on the increased demands as the country has worked to combat COVID-19. We began ramping up early for the peak holiday season given the potential demands and the need to maintain important safety measures. Our processing plants have been operating around the clock, processing record volumes which then go out for delivery each day. To help, we’ve added more than 4,000 seasonal employees, increased our fleet by more than 1,000 vehicles, worked with commercial customers to manage inductions and, throughout it all, encouraged Canadians to shop and ship as early as possible.


Peak season demand beyond projections


What we are seeing now is the full impact of the changes Canadians are making in response to safety and travel restrictions. Canadians are not only shopping online in record numbers for gifts and everyday items, we’ve seen a huge influx of customers at the post offices shipping gifts to replace their traditional holiday visits. We understand the importance of every item.


The result has been an unprecedented demand on our network as we maintain safety measures at each step of the process. Even with processing and delivery moving well with additional resources, there is a limit to what we can safely process and deliver.


We continue to monitor the situation closely and respond accordingly


Looking ahead, with parcel volumes expected to continue at these levels, we want to inform you of some important dates. We’ve revised our shipping deadlines/cut-off dates and ask you to please take them into consideration when shipping and setting expectations with your customers. We remain committed to reliable and timely service and understand the importance of delivering items before Christmas. Deadlines for mail remain unchanged. As a reminder, on-time delivery guarantees have been suspended since March 18, 2020 due to the unique circumstances we are operating in this year.


As we have done all year, we will also advise Canadians of these changes as we work to deliver their items before Christmas.



Canada Post Xpresspost deadline: December 17 
Canada Post Priority deadline: December 18


As of Sep 2020 

Changes to parcel service standards


Canada Post continues to see significantly increased parcel volumes as Canadians adopt different shopping behaviours during COVID-19. Given the high volumes and the important safety measures in place throughout our network to protect Canadians and our employees, including physical distancing, we are adding one day to our standard delivery dates, as of September 21, 2020. As well, our on-time guarantee remains suspended.


While we have adjusted our delivery standards to manage expectations, we remain committed to providing timely and reliable service. However, given the unpredictability of the COVID-19 situation, delivery standards remain subject to change.

Canada Post Update March 18


As the situation caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) quickly evolves, we want to assure you that all of us at Canada Post are doing everything we can to keep our employees, customers and the communities we serve safe.


Following the direction of the Public Health Agency of Canada, we continue to introduce new safety measures to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Until further notice, these safety measures will now include a change to items that are delivered to the door.


To help minimize points of close contact in our communities, we will no longer be requesting signatures for any deliveries to the door. This will eliminate the need for scanners and stylus pens to be passed back and forth during the delivery process of these items. 

Instead, where possible, our delivery agents will apply our safe drop process. This means they will leave these items in your mailbox or outside your door if it’s safe to do so. Where it’s not possible to safe drop, our delivery agent will leave a notice card indicating the post office where you can pick up your items by showing proof of identity.

Canada Post will continue to monitor the rapidly evolving situation around COVID-19, and to actively follow the guidance and safety recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Canada.


In late January, we enacted our corporate pandemic plan. As part of that plan, we have a dedicated internal team regularly monitoring developments, responding to issues and preparing to make any necessary changes in a responsible manner. So far, there have been no impacts to our operations.


We will let you know about any changes we make to our processes that will help increase the collective safety of our communities. If you have general concerns about the safety of the mail, we would like to assure you that the World Health Organization continues to state that mail and packages are safe to handle, including those from incoming countries.


During this difficult period, as we continue to connect and to proudly serve you, please know that your safety and the safety of our employees remains our top priority.

Canada Post Update March 19

Message to customers about Canada Post service guarantees


As Canada Post continues to operate during this unprecedented situation, we expect to face ongoing challenges. We are prepared to adapt to the rapidly changing circumstances around COVID-19, including implementing our contingency plans that will enable us to serve our customers in communities across Canada.


As a result of potential impacts related to our local facilities and air transportation, we are letting you know that effective today (March 18) Canada Post will be suspending our On-time Delivery Guarantees for all parcel services, until further notice. This means that some residents and businesses may begin to experience slower than normal delivery times.


We would like to assure you that as we continue to proudly serve businesses and consumers across the country with all of our products and services, we will strive as best we can to meet our delivery standards.


Like many of you, during this difficult period we are working hard to keep our operations running while also protecting the health and safety of our employees and customers.


We thank you for your patience and understanding throughout these challenging circumstances. We will continue to keep you updated on any changes regarding our services and operations.
