How do I stop delivery of Admail items to my home or business?
To stop receiving unaddressed advertisements such as coupons, flyers and newspapers, free magazines, catalogues, and municipal service notices (e.g. schedule of snow removal, changes in garbage pickup, etc.), place a note in or on your mailbox stating that you do not wish to receive Unaddressed Admail™.
The only unaddressed materials that we will continue to deliver are some community newspapers, as well as mailings from the House of Commons, provincial chief electoral officers, municipal electoral offices and Elections Canada.
We are required by law to deliver any mail that bears your address (including some advertising material). Please note that since Canada Post is only one of many distributors of unaddressed materials, you may continue to receive these materials from other distributors.
What you can do
- To stop delivery of Unaddressed Admail™ place a note on your mailbox (if you get door-to-door delivery).
- If you have a Community Mail Box, group mailbox or a postal box, place the note on the inside lip of the box. The note should not be placed on the inside or the outside of the door.
