Canada Post closures and service interruptions
The flooding and landslides that have occurred in British Columbia have been devastating. Many roads, rail lines and bridges have been damaged, and authorities are still assessing the damage and the work needed to reopen roads. Currently, there is no way to travel through British Columbia on land (by highway or rail), and this restriction has a serious impact on Canada Post’s ability to carry certain mail and parcel items into and out of the province.
When roads start to reopen, Canada Post expects traffic to be slow due to the limited roads available, potential lane reductions along the way, and the volume of vehicles. Please refer to Canada Post service alerts for updates.
