Canada Post issues red and yellow delivery service alerts for parts of B.C.

CANADA Post on Tuesday issued red and yellow delivery service alerts for parts of British Columbia due to inclement weather and snow.

A red service alert means that Canada Post is suspending delivery for the day and not sending its delivery agents out or recalling them.

A yellow service alert means Canada Post is going to do its best to deliver, but there may be delays. Delivery will resume once conditions improve and it’s safe to do so. The safety of its employees is its number one priority, says Canada Post.

Red delivery service alerts were issued for the following regions:

  • Delta
  • Duncan
  • Langley
  • North Vancouver (upgraded from a yellow)
  • South Vancouver
  • Surrey
  • White Rock

The following regions remain under a yellow delivery service alert:

  • Burnaby (issued on Feb. 28)
  • Bowen Island (issued on Feb. 28)
  • New Westminster (issued on Feb. 28)
  • Pemberton (issued on Feb. 28)
  • Squamish (issued on Feb. 28)
  • Whistler (issued on Feb. 28)
  • Fraser Valley (specifically Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Maple Ridge and Mission) (issued on Feb. 27)
  • City of Vancouver (issued on Feb. 27)

An alert can be issued for a particular community or an entire province, depending on the weather event.

Tuesday’s service alerts will be posted to Canada Post’s Delivery service alerts webpage, which lists all active and archived alerts and updates.

“We encourage customers to clear the ice from their walkways, stairs, and driveways, to ensure safe access to the front door for both their visitors, as well as their mail carriers, when service resumes,” said Canada Post.

If customers have questions regarding mail delivery, they can contact Canada Post’s Customer Service team online at or by telephone at 1-866-607-6301 (TTY: 1-800-267-2797).
