UPDATE 139: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On February 26, 2021, Canada Post, the designated operator of Canada, provided notification that processing operations at Gateway East have now resumed the regular three-shift daily schedule. However, delays in the processing of mail items are still to be expected, as Canada Post continues with contingency plans to deal with higher than normal volumes.

Unless otherwise noted, service updates to a particular country do not affect delivery of military and diplomatic mail.

This service update affects Priority Mail Express International® (PMEI), Priority Mail International® (PMI), First-Class Mail International® (FCMI), First-Class Package International Service® (FCPIS®), International Priority Airmail® (IPA®), International Surface Air Lift® (ISAL®), and M-Bag® items.

The DMM Advisory will continue to provide updates as they are received. For a full list of international service disruptions, please visit
