CORNWALL, ONTARIO – The holiday season is quickly approaching and Canada Post is ramping up for a busy peak season. During the pandemic, Canadians became much more comfortable shopping online and our research shows that this trend will continue for the 2022 holiday season. During this time of year, our delivery agents are out more often delivering holiday cards, letters and parcels to Canadians.
While our delivery agents are doing their best to deliver through difficult weather conditions, severe winter elements pose a safety risk to our employees – and others. That’s why we’re reminding homeowners to help us deliver letters and parcels safely by keeping a clear and safe path to their home. With everyone’s support, we can help avoid an injury that can happen in just seconds.
We are asking Cornwall residents and businesses to remember these tips to help keep our people safe:
– Remove snow and ice from your walkways, driveway, and around your mailbox.
– De-ice your stairs, entrance, and the path to your mailbox, using sand or salt.
– Keep your stairs, handrails, and mailbox free of obstructions, and in good repair.
We appreciate your help in keeping our employees – and others – safe.
Here are links to our social media posts including a short awareness video – Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. Thank you in advance for sharing this important reminder.
