Canada Post has followed up with Council regarding the phase-in of the Community Mailboxes in neighbourhoods currently receiving door-to-door service.
They have advised that they will not convene a public meeting wherein residents would be able to have their questions answered in a group setting. However they have committed to meeting with residents individually at their homes.
Canada Post staff will begin door knocking at those homes who will be affected by a Community Mailbox site located on the municipal easement either abutting or adjacent to their property beginning on Monday, January 12, 2015. They will make three attempts to contact at the door, after which they will leave behind a note describing how to set up an appointment time.
At that time, they will explain why the location was chosen, when the boxes will be installed and when delivery will commence. Canada Post will accept concerns and input regarding the location and the location would remain subject to changes based on your input. Once consultation is complete, Council will be advised as to where the new mailbox locations will be set.
Any inquiries you may have with respect to how your mail service will be accommodated can be directed to Canada Post's hotline at 1-844-454-3009.
