Delivery accommodation program

    Ensuring all of our customers can access their mail

    The delivery accommodation program is a mail delivery service designed to support customers with functional limitations that limit their ability to access their mail.

    Who is eligible for delivery accommodation

    Residential customers with a functional limitation, mobility limitation or other health issue that impacts their ability to access their mailbox are eligible for delivery accommodation. Accommodation requests are assessed on a case-by-case basis. You can submit a request on behalf of the person requiring a delivery accommodation.

    Examples of delivery accommodation

    Accommodation solutions vary and can be provided year-round, temporarily or seasonally.

    • Mailbox key turner
    • Sliding mail tray
    • Mailbox compartment adjustment
    • Mailbox braille markings
    • Weekly home delivery
    • Mail redirection to a family member or post office
