Canada postal service
disruption news

Canada Post and its unions are currently engaged in a labour dispute that is taking the form of rotating strikes by the unions - different cities across the country for periods of 24-72 hours at a time. This is causing backlogs in the movement of mail trough the main distribution centers.

Most of our westbound and international mail moves through Toronto/Mississauga. Until recently, it has been clearing through there very well. We are still mailing out orders, however, in the last few days, Toronto/Mississaugua has been the target of the rotating strikes and a backlog has developed.

Accordingly, we are delaying mailing westbound and international orders until this backlog appears to be clear. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

While Government mediation attempts this past weekend have failed, Prime Minister Trudeau is on record as saying "All options are on the table" to end this labour dispute. Hopefully it will be brought to an end soon without a complete cessation of mail service.

Thank you for your patience and your continued patronage.
