Free Mail Forwarding service now available

Eligible residents can receive free Mail Forwarding service for up to 12 months. Impacted residents have until June 17 to register for the free service.

By registering, Canada Post will be able to ship mail to a different address selected by the customer. This can be done on a short-term basis or for longer periods, even if the address is temporary.
