Although Canada Post has added new staff
for the Christmas and New Year holidays this year
and added weekend delivery services,
this year’s Christmas and New Year holidays Canada Post
still cannot guarantee 100% delivery on time.
The Canadian Post Office recommends that
when ordering online,
if you want to receive your order before Christmas
and do not want to pay an additional expedited delivery fee,
then you better complete your online order by December 11.
The Canada Post Montreal area official said that
compared with the same period in 2017,
Canada Post has increased its parcel delivery volume by 30% this year.
This year’s Black Friday purchase day and Christmas and New Year holidays are
too close to each other is also a reason for the large increase in the number of parcel delivery.
Another reason is that Canada Post accepts some other private delivery companies
that are not willing to accept delivery services.
These private delivery companies include UPS, Purolator, etc.
The person in charge also explained that
if you order from Amazon,
they have to decide which company to deliver the parcels to,
and if other delivery companies
companies do not accept delivery because of full load,
then these parcels are delivered by Canada Post.
As a result, two-thirds of online parcels
are usually delivered by the Canadian Post Office.
