USPS Resumes Accepting Mail to Canada

The U.S. Postal Service will resume accepting mail for Canada starting Tuesday, June 28. This action follows yesterday’s order by the Canadian Parliament for Canada Post employees to return to work tonight.

Mail that was held in the U.S. Postal Service network is being released today and transported to Canada in stages. Customers will experience some delays in service due to the large volume of mail that was being held. We are working closely with Canada Post to minimize these delays and to return to normal service levels as quickly as possible.

Global Express Guaranteed (GXG) remains the best option to avoid delays in service. GXG is available online at and at thousands of participating Post Office locations throughout the United States.
