Step 2: Sign in or create your Canada Post account

The app will ask you to sign in to your Canada Post account. If you don’t already have one, you’ll be asked to create one in a few easy steps.

Step 3: Find out if your mailing address is eligible

My Mailbox is growing to new areas across the country, however, it’s currently only available for certain mailing addresses. Sign up for My Mailbox to find out whether your address is eligible. If it’s not, you’ll be added to our waitlist and we’ll reach out when your address becomes eligible.

Step 4: Get consent from the other members of your household

My Mailbox sends you notifications about mail arriving at your address, whether the recipient is you or someone else in your household. As part of the registration process, Canada Post will send a notice in the mail giving everyone in the household the chance to consent to the service. Learn more through our terms and conditions.

Step 5: Start checking your mail through My Mailbox

Within 1-2 business days, you’ll receive updates on mail coming to your address.

Step 6: Choose how to see your mail – through the app, your email inbox, or both

My Mailbox updates are available through the app as well as daily emails, so you can decide how you prefer to be notified of your incoming mail.
