Canada Post’s New Mail Distribution

As most of you probably know by now, Canada Post will be replacing door to door mail delivery later this year with centralized community mail boxes. Notices were dropped off across the neighbourhood this month indicating where your specific mailbox will be located.

The decision to undertake this change is purely economics, but falls squarely into the category of “you can’t please everybody”, or, “not in my back yard (NIMBY)”.

Regardless of your stance on the subject, our city councillor, Rick Chiarrelli is offering the community association an opportunity to be heard by a Canada Post representative. We were given minimal notice, so if you do have thoughts on box placements, etc., please raise your concerns immediately by sending an email to, and we will table these at next week’s meeting.
