Parcel delivery is booming, but Canada Post says it will struggle to meet its government-mandated goal of self-sustainability in coming years due to an ongoing decline in letter mail, higher employee costs and billions in needed capital spending.
The coconut, graham cracker-crusted, custard-filled, chocolate delicacy warmly known as the Nanaimo bar is earning a reputation as Canada’s sweetheart after Canada Post announced it would be featured in a new stamp collection.
A video showing a Canada Post worker dropping off a delivery slip for a package at a home without knocking or ringing the doorbell has touched a nerve among hundreds of thousands of people who have watched it.
Starting Jan. 14, Canada Post says the cost for an individual stamp on a letter sent within Canada will be $1.05, instead of a loonie. Other increases for mail within the country range between a dime and 35 cents depending on the size of the letter.
