Significant resources being devoted to address backlog in Toronto operations

October 25, 2018

We are devoting significant resources to returning our Toronto operations to normal as quickly as we can after two days of rotating strikes there by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW). This includes:

  • Extending collection and delivery through this weekend.
  • Bringing in extra people to clear the backlog, including extending hours of part-time employees and offering overtime as needed.

Meanwhile, CUPW is conducting rotating strike action in Calgary and Red Deer, Alberta and Sherbrooke, Quebec. The rotating strike action in Calgary began at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 24, in Sherbrooke at 4:00 a.m. and in Red Deer at 6:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 25 (local times).

Mail and parcels will not be delivered or picked up in the impacted areas while the union continues their strike activity. Employees at other strike locations have returned to work.

If you have not done so already, please register for regular updates by email on this page. We will also post information about service disruptions resulting from rotating strikes on Twitter using the handle @canadapostcorp.

Thank you for your continued patience.
