Canada Post: Make Sure your Mail is in the Bag!

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 13, 2007) - Did you know that Canada Post handled more than 290,000 change of address requests for Quebec in 2005 and more than 302,000 in 2006? With more than 116 million items a year redirected throughout Canada, Canada Post, through its change of address service, provides an affordable service that is among the most reliable.

It is well known that the months of June and July are a feverish period punctuated by many moves for people in Quebec. Between boxes, moving out, renovations, decorating and moving in, you want to make sure that your regular mail and even your occasional mail (financial statements, license renewals, memberships or subscriptions, annual reports and product recall notices) are delivered to you without worry.

By acting without delay, at least two weeks before your move, you can protect your mail and your identity and move with peace of mind of no interruption in postal service.

If you decide to come into one of our outlets to fill out a Change of Address Notification, you will be asked to show two pieces of identification, one with a photo, in order to process your request. If you move within the same province, it will cost you only $36 (plus tax) for a period of six months. Remember to ask for some of our Change of Address cards. They are free, so you will need only affix a stamp on them and put them in the mail.

Don't have time to go to the post office? The online change of address service is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Looking for useful tips, special product and service offers and information on moving? The Smartmoves™ program will provide you with an extremely user-friendly checklist and help you not only inform the organizations that send you mail, but also send great virtual cards free to friends and family to notify them of your new address.
