Facilities Management wished to advise the campus community that Canada Post is now into their fifth week of rotating strikes and it has touched virtually every Canada Post facility and every Canadian address so far.

Expect prolonged delivery delays.

The postal service remains operational, but Canada Post has advised commercial customers that it is not able to honour its delivery standards for any product because of prolonged and ongoing rotating strikes. The strikes have created massive backlogs of mail and parcels already in our network, just days before we expect millions more parcels from Black Friday and Cyber Monday online sales.

While there will be delays across the country, Canada Post expects the worst delays for mail and parcels will be for items that originate or are destined for southern and southwestern Ontario.

Customers can go to for updates or follow us on twitter @canadapostcorp for the latest developments.
