How does Change of Address (Mail Forwarding) work?
All mail addressed to your original address will be forwarded to your new place of residence. Mail forwarded as part of the service can be identified if the new address information is printed at the top of the envelope or on a yellow label affixed on the envelope. The service allows you to focus on the task of moving/relocating and to take the time you need to update your address information on file with everyone that need to know. You may notice that some mail will arrive a couple of days after you expect it if the distance between your two addresses is significant.
Two types of Mail Forwarding services are offered:
Mail Forwarding for Moves (not returning to original address)
- When moving to a new residence or place of business
- To manage an Estate and receive mail addressed to a deceased individual
- When changing P.O. Boxes
Mail Forwarding for Temporary Relocation (returning to original address)
- When temporarily reassigned to a new job in a new city
- When relocating south to escape harsh Canadian winters
- When staying at a cottage for summer months
- When managing mail on behalf of another individual
- When your business is temporarily closed or relocated due to renovations
