Video: Canada Post ends home delivery for thousands

Canada Post stopped home delivery to 74,000 addresses in 10 communities across the country on Monday, part of the Crown corporation’s move to end all urban door-to-door mail service to five million Canadians in five years.

People in the affected areas will have to get mail from their local community mailbox.

Canada Post says it is phasing out home delivery, and cutting thousands of jobs, owing to financial losses stemming from falling mail volume and increasing use of digital communication. The corporation says Canadians mailed almost 1.2 billion fewer pieces of mail in 2013 than they did in 2006.

    The patron’s mail will be safe and secure now. This a great move. No more being responsible for up keep on their rural mail box or worrying about the safety of sending monthly bills out.
