Santa’s post office getting busier and busier!
Each year, the holiday season puts a spotlight on popular toys and new exciting trends, but one timeless holiday tradition is still going strong for children all over the world. Already, Santa’s post office is reporting letters are pouring in – with the first one received in July, reminding Santa to eat well and exercise in anticipation of a very busy holiday season.
Canada Post blends the playful and magical essence of the holidays with the sacred tradition of Christmas with its latest holiday stamp issue, released today.
With more Canadians doing their holiday shopping online, parcel volumes have begun to soar, setting up what is expected to be a record-breaking season. As Canada Post delivers two out of three parcels ordered online, it has significantly boosted its seasonal resources and revamped its operations to ensure that retailers can meet customer expectations, and that gift-givers across the country receive their orders on time.
Canada Post is confident that its plan to secure postal service for all Canadians, including those with disabilities or mobility issues, will withstand any and all legal scrutiny.
Today, Canada Post is issuing a commemorative envelope to celebrate the monumental achievement of the Québec Conference delegates. Along with the Charlottetown Conference envelope issued this past September, it continues the story of the first steps in the foundation of our country through archival photographs, art and documents. The envelope showcases a photograph of the conference delegates present at the Québec Conference.
