Canada Post sets emergency measures in motion for evacuees

Fort McMurray, AB, Canada / MIX 103.7

Canada Post is setting up delivery of mail to displaced residents.

The crown corporation has set in motion emergency measures.

Residents can register at any post office across the country or online.

To help reconnect displaced residents with the postal system as quickly as possible, Canada Post is asking residents to register for the Mail Forwarding service.  This is an important service not just for ongoing mail and parcels, but it also provides a vital link with government and relief agencies going forward.

Canada Post says those registering will be asked to provide a credit card number, but  will be refunded in 5-10 business days.  Canada Post says they apologize for the inconvenience, but to make the service available quickly, they’ve have had to take this approach.

By registering, Canada Post will be able to ship mail and parcels to a different address selected by the customer, as well as reprocess and ship existing mail and parcels. This can be done on a short-term basis or for longer periods, even if the address is temporary.
