The Canadian Union of Postal Workers has released a preliminary list of where community mailboxes will be installed in Winnipeg this summer and fall.
Two parts of northwest Winnipeg, specifically homes whose postal codes start with R2P and R2V will be among the first in the country to switch from door-to-door deliver to community mailboxes in the fall.
Ben Zorn, the CUPW’s local president in Winnipeg, said the union received the addresses as part of a much larger document, and they worked to extract the points.
“This is the information that Canada Post has provided to the union for the purposes of identifying letter carrier routes so presumably these would be the places,” he said. “What we see the most is that particularly in the older grid neighbourhoods is that they are on side streets along the sides of people’s properties.”
