Holiday Mailing Solutions
With Christmas only two weeks away, now is the time to get your holiday mailings into Canada Post.
If you have holiday cards and packages to be delivered before our fast-approaching merriest date, today might be the last day to do so.
This is not to say that all holiday mailing inducted to Canada Post after today will arrive later than Christmas day. A lot of last-minute mailing will indeed beat the clock—as postal services have geared up for our busiest season yet. As a safeguard, however, this is the final day to secure a Canada Post guarantee for pre-December 25th deliveries.
Fortunately for those of us running behind, this deadline mainly refers to direct mail sent as regular mail. For all scrambling well-wishers who need a little more time to add those final festive touches, let us remind you of Canada Post’s alternative mailing solutions, available all-year-round:
Expedited Parcel – delivers in 1-7 days / $100 liability coverage / tracking and delivery confirmation
Xpresspost – delivers in 1-2 days / $100 liability coverage / tracking and delivery confirmation
Priority™ – delivers the next day / $100 liability coverage / tracking and delivery confirmation / request signature
