Forest fires and air quality are affecting mail and parcel delivery in certain communities in British Columbia. At the moment, this does not include Prince George. Canada Post has put contingency measures in place to serve residents of these communities.
Canada Post is providing service alerts for communities affected by the wildfires, as well as updates on the delivery of government cheques. Affected resident requiring urgent access to critical items, such as medications or passports, may call Canada Post at 1-800-267-1177. Residents looking for a secure destination to send items they purchase online may sign up for Canada Post’s free FlexDelivery service, which allows them to send online purchases to any post office in Canada.
To help reconnect displaced residents with the postal system as quickly as possible, Canada Post is asking evacuees to register for their free Mail Forwarding service. This ensures that displaced residents continue to receive their mail and parcels, including vital information from government and relief agencies.
