Canada Post Puts Community Mail Box Plan on Hold

Monday, October 26, 2015 @ 2:36 PM

Prince George, B.C.-  Canada Post has  announced it is putting its  switch to community mail box program on  hold.

In a release issued from Ottawa,  Canada Post says  it is “temporarily suspending future deployment of the program to convert door-to-door mail delivery to community mailboxes.”

Canada Post says it will ” work collaboratively with the Government of Canada to determine the best path forward given the ongoing challenges faced by the Canadian postal system.”

There are some 460 thousand addresses across Canada that were in the process of being converted to a community  mailbox system,  Canada Post says efforts are  “underway to place the comprehensive program on hold in an orderly fashion.”

Conversions planned for November and  December of this year as well  as  those announced for  next year  are  on hold.  Canada Post says customers  impacted   can expect a letter  ( delivered to their door)  advising them of  the  decision.

In  neighbourhoods where the conversions have already been made,   customers  will continue to  use the community mail boxes, as will  those who were  set to start receiving  their mail  in the community  boxes   in October.



Well this is interesting. I want my mail delivered to my house as well. Make it so Justin!

Why should a conservative want door to door service?
