There is still plenty of time to shop online as Canada Post’s holiday delivery plans are in full effect, helping us to deliver a record 3.2 million parcels over this past weekend and on Monday. On Monday (December 9) we delivered 2.2 million parcels, combined with the 960,000 we delivered over the weekend which were both new highs. We expect to deliver an average of 1.7 million parcels a day between now and Christmas.

To support the impressive delivery effort, our plants have been running at capacity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to process heavy volumes of holiday parcels, packets and mail. We’ve also hired nearly 3,800 seasonal employees to help in processing and delivering this holiday season. That’s on top of the more than 50,000 employee serving the customer in delivery, processing and retail.

Canada Post will continue to deliver on weekends to keep pace, which started in some areas this year as early as November 9.
