Canada Post is currently in labour negotiations. Failed negotiations could lead to delays in:
- receiving applications mailed within or to Canada
- sending mail to you
If you’re planning on traveling to Canada or submitting an application, (including for a passport or other travel document) apply early.
Visit Canada Post for more information before sending any application by mail. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
