Canada Post will continue to make every effort to minimize the impact, but customers across the country can expect delays of several days for parcel and mail delivery. Mail and parcels will not be delivered or picked up in impacted areas while the union continues their strike activity. We thank our customers for their continued patience and apologize for the inconvenience this is causing.
