USPS Not Accepting International Mail to Canada Effective Sunday, June 19th, 2011

Canada Post has informed the USPS today that their suspension of service (due to a nationwide strike) will last at least until sometime next week as they await the Canadian government’s action on back-to-work legislation. As a result, effective 11:59 p.m. CDT Saturday, June 18, the USPS will stop accepting all mail destined for Canada, with the exception of Global Express Guaranteed (GXG) service. The USPS has stated that customers can avoid service disruptions by using GXG service, which is available at thousands of participating retail locations throughout the U.S. The USPS has also stated that once Canada Post announces that they will resume operations, the USPS will once again begin accepting mail destined to Canada. Any mail that is currently being held within the USPS network will also be dispatched.
As always, additional information and updates regarding acceptance and movement of international mail is available at
