Red delivery service alert issued for Eastern and Southern Ontario and the Greater Toronto Area

Canada Post has issued today a red delivery service alert due to a snowstorm impacting Eastern and Southern Ontario and the Greater Toronto Area. A red service alert means that we are suspending delivery for the day and not sending our delivery agents out or recalling them. Delivery will resume once conditions improve and it’s safe to do so. The safety of our employees is our number one priority.

An alert can be issued for a particular community or an entire province, depending on the weather event.

Today’s service alerts will be posted to our Delivery service alerts webpage, which lists all active and archived alerts and updates.

We encourage customers to clear the ice from their walkways, stairs, and driveways, to ensure safe access to the front door for both their visitors, as well as their mail carriers, when service resumes.

If customers have questions regarding mail delivery, they can contact Canada Post's Customer Service team online at or by telephone at 1-866-607-6301 (TTY: 1-800-267-2797).
