Tips on Neighbourhood Mail

Your mail pieces must be sent from Canada and delivered within Canada. Follow these guidelines for a better delivery experience.

2

Please keep your Neighbourhood Mail pieces unaddressed.

3

Proper mail preparation is important to making sure your mailing is processed and delivered efficiently. Read our bundling requirements.

4

Your mailing must meet the minimum volume requirement: one postal route (average 500 addresses) or any combination of householder type on a given route.

Pricing

Our pricing is easier than you think– here’s how it works. You want to send flyers to homes near your business. For Neighbourhood Mail, you’ll need to send 1 flyer to every address on a postal route (approximately 500 addresses). We’ll charge you as little as $0.16 for each flyer. You pay: $0.16/flyer x 500 (sample # of houses on a postal route) = $80. Prices are exclusive of taxes and are subject to change without notice. Terms and conditions apply.
