Canada Post Neighbourhood Mail delivery standards

See estimated delivery times for your unaddressed marketing mail

Delivery standards are estimates of the number of days* it will take for your items to be delivered once they are brought to a post office or mail processing plant.

Delivery standards are comprised of two components, transportation time and delivery cycle, which added together determine the delivery standard.

The Canada Post Neighbourhood Mail™ service delivery standards vary depending on your items’ size, weight, origin, destination and mailing options such as transportation.

If you bring your mailing to the processing location responsible for local delivery, your delivery standards are as follows.

Category Thickness Weight Delivery Cycle*
Standard and Oversize up to 0.75 in. (1.91 cm) up to 200 g (7.05 oz.) up to 3 business days
up to 1 in. (2.54 cm) up to 300 g (10.58 oz.) up to 4 business days
up to 500 g (17.64 oz.) up to 9 business days

* For non-letter carrier routes, the delivery cycle, in business days, is 1 day for items up to 500 g (17.64 oz.) and 3 to 5 days for items up to 1,000 g (35.3 oz.) with a maximum thickness of 1.5 in. (3.81 cm).

Mail preparation is the process of preparing your mail, by securely bundling items and labelling containers and shipping units.

Brick-piled Mail is a way used to secure mail items without containers onto a pallet or in a monotainer. You can use pallets and monotainers for transportation (as a single unit) of mail items from your location to an approved Canada Post facility where the mail will be deposited.

1.1                    Residential and business delivery area counts and maps

 Information about the delivery areas served by our delivery offices is segmented into the number of houses, apartments, farms and business points of call that help customers determine the number of items needed for their mailing.

The national database of Householder Counts is available on CD-ROM or by download from a secured Canada Post FTP site on a 12-month subscription basis, which includes monthly updates. Visit canadapost.ca/data for Individual Householder Counts, which are available free of charge or send an email to data.targetingsolutions@canadapost.ca.

FSA MAPS ROUTE MAPS
The FSA Maps identify the specific geographic boundaries for every FSA in Canada. The maps will assist in determining sales territories, plan coverage for a marketing campaign, or study new locations for a retail store or business. Residential and Business Delivery Area Maps provide the actual routes (walks), covered by the Letter Carriers. This is particularly useful for targeting local neighbourhoods.

Each Delivery Facility targeted by your mailing will receive at least one bundle. Use the distribution plan generated by Canada Post Electronic Shipping Tools (EST) or Precision Targeter as a reference.
