Becoming an Authorized Dealer for Canada Post
Frequently Asked Questions
New retail post offices are opened in suitable businesses in response to the needs of our customers. We analyze potential new areas through a combination of locational analysis, customer input and local management expertise.
Once we determine that a new post office is required in any given area, Canada Post representatives approach suitable, established businesses in the surrounding area to see who may be interested in operating a post office. We then select the most appropriate location based on our site selection criteria.
Should a need arise in your area, and your host business is considered as a potential location for a post office, you will be contacted by a Canada Post representative.
Canada Post does not set up any Authorized Dealers as stand-alone post offices.
