U.S. to Canada Mail Service to Resume

by | Jun 27, 2011 | Rental Property Management Tips

Postal service from the U.S. to Canada will resume on Tuesday, June 28, according to a statement by the U.S. Postal Service.

Canada Post workers have been staging strikes in that country over the past two weeks, causing delays and disruption of mail service–including rent payments and rental documents, throughout Canada and across the border into the U.S. 

In response to these delays, the U.S. Postal Service announced last Saturday that it had suspended outgoing mail service to Canada until the strike is resolved.

The Canadian government passed back-to-work legislation over the weekend that went into effect within 24 hours.  Canada Post workers are expected to return to their jobs late Monday.

Mail that was held in the U.S. Postal Service network since the work stoppage began was released Monday and will be  transported to Canada in stages. Customers will experience some delays in service due to the large volume of mail that was being held. The U.S. Postal Service is working closely with Canada Post to keep these delays to a minimum and return service levels back to normal for all products as quickly as possible.

Meanwhile, Global Express Guaranteed (GXG) remains the best option to avoid delays in service. GXG is a premium, date-certain international shipping option with international transportation and delivery by FedEx Express. GXG is available online and at thousands of participating retail locations throughout the United States or through Click-N-Ship.
