Know when your letter arrived and who signed for it

    Use Registered MailTM to prove your letter arrived safely. You’ll get a copy of the signature for mail sent in Canada and a date-stamped official receipt for international mailings. Available at the post office.

    What proof do I get with Registered Mail?

    It depends on where you’re sending it:

    Registered Mail Canada (domestic)

    You can send letters, documents and small items like coins and jewellery by Registered Mail. Here’s the proof you’ll receive when it’s delivered:
    • Signature of the person who signed when it was delivered
    • Date it was signed 
    • Mailing receipt

    Registered Mail U.S. and international

    You can send letters and documents by Registered Mail. Here’s the proof you’ll receive when it’s delivered: 
    • Date-stamped official receipt
    • Combine with XpresspostTM – USA to get a signature for Registered Mail sent to the U.S.
    If speed is a consideration, or you want to send an item that’s not a letter or document use our parcel services.
