Registered Mail™ gives you proof that a letter has been delivered, tracking and a signature on delivery.
You can register letters being mailed to Canadian destinations. These features are included in the basic price:
- Proof of delivery.
- Signature of recipient (view online).
- Full tracking.
- Dated receipt confirms mail was registered if you purchase the service from a retail postal outlet.
- Liability insurance coverage of up to $100.
- Return to sender if item is undeliverable.
- Mail Forwarding™ service if recipient has purchased this option.
Signature on delivery
You’ll get the time your item was delivered and the signature of the person who received it. See the signature online, usually by noon the following business day.
Receipt of mailing
Get proof of mail registration when you pay at a post office. Businesses that prepay receive a detachable tracking number.
Please note we do not have tracking information for Registered Mail sent to Canada from the U.S. or internationally. Try contacting the sender or the post office in the originating country.
For an additional fee you can also choose:
- A hard copy of the recipient’s signature.
- Additional liability coverage of up to $5,000.
Add Registered Mail to your parcel mix and you can save money on small packages that fit the size and weight requirements for Lettermail™.
Use it for small packages
If you are shipping smaller items out of province and speed isn’t an issue — but tracking is important — consider using Registered Mail. You’ll enjoy tracking, liability insurance, plus the bonus of signature on delivery.
Save up to 25% on base postage
Take advantage of your business’ meter or indicia postage to save even more on basic Lettermail rates.
No need for a trip to the post office. If you have a contract with Canada Post, you can order and print Registered Mail labels with our online tools.
