Canada Post has a message for Canadians this holiday season: Shop Early!
The holidays may not be for a few months, but Canada Post wants you to start thinking about them now. In a new video released from the company, Canada Post is urging Canadians to shop early this year. It’s the best way to make sure all your packages get to you safely and on time.
The video features the company’s Chief Customer and Marketing Officer Rod Hart as he addresses Canadians directly. It’s no secret that online shopping has been experiencing a massive boom these days, and with the holidays approaching that’s all likely to get even busier. As you may remember, Canada Post experienced holiday levels of demand back at the beginning of the pandemic. So we can only imagine how busy things will get during the actual holidays.
We’re asking Canadians to break with tradition this year and shop earlier to avoid a holiday capacity crunch. https://t.co/Mpi4mmHuWI

Of course, there are a ton of ways that the company is planning to deal with the situation. They’ve upped delivery staff and vehicles. Plus, they’ve extended hours and added new parcel pickup locations. But even with all this, they’re predicting a crazy last-minute boom.
So what can you do to help? Order early! Put some of that extra time at home to use by planning out your gift-giving in advance. The sooner you take care of all that, the smoother the holiday season will go.
