Canada Post Strikes & Delays


The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) continues its strike activity in Kelowna, B.C. and in Edmonton, Alta. Strikes also started Monday morning in Kitchener (Ont.) and at one delivery centre in Toronto. Mail and parcels will not be delivered or picked up in impacted areas and due to the delays caused by the union’s ongoing rotating strikes, Canada Post has suspended its delivery standard guarantees for parcel services.

OCS has learned that some international postal providers are either completely suspending their services to Canada at this time or quoting significant delays of up to eight weeks. OCS will continue to monitor the situation closely.
