Mail delivery planning for builders

Make sure the mailboxes you install in new subdivisions and condos meet our requirements.

Make sure the mailboxes you install in new subdivisions and condos meet our requirements.

Centralized mail delivery is now an essential part of all new residential and commercial developments in Canada. Our Delivery Planning Standards manual outlines the standards of customer mail receiving equipment, such as community mailboxes in new subdivisions or lockboxes for apartment buildings and condos.

The manual was developed in cooperation with builders, developers, architects, planners, and municipal authorities. It provides guidance for every step in the development process, including:

  • Design
  • Construction
  • Installation

Have your plans reviewed by a delivery planner

While the manual is comprehensive in detailing the delivery options available to you, it is essential that your plans be reviewed by a Canada Post delivery planner and we recommend contacting the planning office nearest you before any major step in your project.
