Canada Post is the postal operator that performs delivery in Canada of U.S. shipments of First-Class Mail International® service, First-Class Package International Service®, International Priority Airmail® service, International Surface Air Lift® service, Priority Mail International® service, and Priority Mail Express International® service.

If a strike or work stoppage occurs, USPS will continue to offer customers the option of using Global Express Guaranteed® (GXG) service for delivery of documents and merchandise in Canada, with transportation and delivery by FedEx.
