Attention: Possible Canada Post Service Disruption – Important Notice

The Government of Canada has measures in place to ensure that Canadians continue to receive services and benefits during periods of Canada Post service disruption.

The Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces have more information on any possible impact on their services or benefits.

When possible, Canadians are encouraged to sign up for direct deposit, since it is the most efficient and surest method of payment that will not be impacted by a postal disruption.
