How The Canada Post Strike Affects Your Application Submission

Posted Tuesday, June 14th, 2011 at 12:40 pm

As residents of the United States, you may have heard the the CUPW (Canadian Union of Postal Workers) has gone on strike with the Canada Post corporation. This means, if you have an existing application that was mailed via USPS prior to the strike start, your submission will have been delayed with a series of circulating strikes. Today, Today (June 14th, 2011) Canada Post has locked out it’s employees, effectively stopping mail circulation in Canada. This is only in Canada, however, if you’ve snail mailed your application into Passport Canada via the United States Postal Service, a complete stoppage in mail would delay your application’s reception by the Government of Canada.

We recommend submitting your application via international ship or courier at all times to ensure it’s timely reception by the Federal government of Canada, however we realize this is not always possible. If you have any questions – contact us.
