The 2014 holiday season is right around the corner, and Canada Post has already begun its annual tradition of weekend parcel delivery.

“Last year,  for the first time in its history, Canada Post delivered one million parcels in a single day on two occasions –December 10 and December 17.”  

More than 3,000 seasonal workers have been hired to complement Canada Post’s 49,000 delivery and processing employees. That translates into approximately 2oo,ooo delivery hours across the country over the holiday period.

Delivering two-thirds of all parcels ordered online, Canada Post ensures that retailers keep up with customer demands and that your packages arrive in time for the holidays–from coast to coast to coast.

The bottom line…
