Canada Post Potential Strike 2018

Update September 25:

For the time being, a Canada Post strike has been averted.  
At this point, if a strike were to occur, the CUPW has to give a 72 hour notice.  The union has stated they will not give notice on September 26. We will continue monitoring the situation, but for now, it appears that Canada Post remains a good shipping option.


Original Posting from September 12, modified September 25:

In what seems to be a bi-annual tradition, Canada Post workers may go on strike.
We sincerely hope that the CUPW and Canada Post can come to an agreement.  Canada Post is the most economical carrier we use, and with our high volume we pass along great savings on shipping costs to our customers.
If a strike does occur, all mail service including packages will stop.  
For orders placed after September 18:
  1. If you live in urban/suburban areas of Ontario or Quebec, Expedited Parcel service generally takes 2 days or less. 
  2. If you live in urban/suburban areas of the Maritimes, Alberta, BC, Manitoba or Saskatchewan, consider Xpresspost since it is a 2 to 3 day service.
  3. If a strike does happen, we will stop offering Canada Post shipping options
  4. We will not be liable in any way for packages held up due to a Canada Post strike.  If Canada Post does go on strike, all package movement will stop.  
Alternative options for shipping
  1. If you are in the GTA, we will continue to offer our local pickup service
  2. We will continue to offer FedEx services.  
  3. If you have your own carrier account with UPS, FedEx or Purolator, let us know and we can ship using your account
We hope that this issue is resolved soon.  If you have any questions, please contact us via email for the quickest response.
