According to Canada Post:
As of 12pm EST on 11/27/18, the union is no longer in a legal strike position. We expect employees to return to work in areas impacted by strike activity in the last 24 hours. Canada Post is now working to stabilize operations with a manageable approach across the country. With our network currently facing unprecedented backlogs, customers can continue to expect delivery delays for the next several weeks.
The ongoing labor dispute initiated by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) is causing country-wide shipping delays. To get the latest updates on this situation, sign up for updates from Canada Post.
We offer 3 levels of service for deliveries to Canada, here is how they are affected by the current strikes:
- ECONOMY - since Canada Post / Royal Mail is the final delivery carrier for this method, if you select this option your order will likely be affected by the strikes with delays / delivery times that are not possible to predict at this time.
- PRIORITY - if you select this option, that allows us to route most parcels to alternate delivery partners in Canada to bypass the strikes as much as possible. Some delays are still possible. Total delivery time is estimated at 7-14 business days instead of the usual 4-10 days.
- URGENT - if you select this option, we will ship your parcel via DHL EXPRESS, which completely bypasses the strike and offers the fastest delivery possible (2-7 business days)
