Post Canada Post Suspends Operations

An ongoing labor dispute between Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers has escalated to a full lockout. Canada Post has announced that, effective today, mail will not be accepted or delivered across Canada until further notice.
The lockout impacts all shipments to and from Canada handled by Canada Post, as well as shipments into Canada via postal carriers such as USPS or Royal Mail.
Sellers from both sides of the border who have not yet shipped items that have been paid for are encouraged to work with their buyers to discuss potential alternate shipping options. Sellers who can offer courier services, such as UPS or FedEx, are encouraged to modify their listings to offer these options. We’re adding messaging in purchase flows to alert buyers to the situation, and we’ve also included a message in the feedback process to remind buyers that shipping delays due to labor disputes are not within a seller’s control.
We will work closely with the Seller Standards team to protect sellers from lower performance ratings received due to Canada Post disruption-related issues.
This is an unfortunate and frustrating situation. While we hope for a quick resolution to the conflict, we will do everything in our power to support sellers during this time.






Thats gonna suck for alot of Canadians.... plus not to mention a few sales to Canada also

Luckily I live relatively close to the US border. I'm now driving there to use the USPS. Big pain in the ass, especially with hour long border crossing lineups. **** YOU Canada Post!

They don't ask you to pay duties on those items?

Hey guys, so here is what I understand about this dispute.

The Conservatives have said that they are going to pass legislation to force CP employees back to work. The didn't waste more then 12 hours after it was announced to give the required notice, and the first meeting the will be having with the senate is on monday. As long as there is a majority vote on the issue, CP goes back to work.

The NDP is opposed to the idea, but the tories still have a majority govt anyway so I am pretty sure the bill will be bassed regardless. I could be wrong on this, I am not well read on the politics of having a bill passed by the senate. Monday is the earliest they could be legislated back to work, and if for whatever reason the bill is not passed they will meet again on it Wednesday.

I REALLY hope that this goes through because it is killing my business.

I have a package about 7 LBS, that I was supposed to send via USPS Express Mail to Canada tomorrow. It would cost me about 55$.

What Fedex or UPS options do I have. I need something with tracking number basically and preferrably Signature too. What service from FEDEX or UPS should I use?

Regular mail will not be received during the strike. FedEx, UPS and other non-generic methods will go through.

Don't know the prices - that you would have to look into - for 6-7 lbs, I am sure about the same, UPS is prob cheaper.

Before i knew it, i had a few items returned to me because of this mess.

Does anyone know how to adjust the "no sale to Canada" without having to revise each and every listing separately? i got about 300 plus items and that would take forever

hopefully Canada gets their mail back to normal soon,
I sell alot to them with never a problem.
