Canada Post today (Wednesday) issued red and yellow delivery service alerts for parts of British Columbia due to inclement weather and significant snowfall.
The communities affected today include Delta.
A red service alert means that Canada Post is suspending delivery for the day and not sending 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, says the postal service, noting the safety of its employees is its top priority.
Red delivery service alerts were issued for the following regions:
Vancouver Island, specifically Nanaimo and Parksville.
Metro Vancouver, including Coquitlam, Delta, Langley, New Westminster, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Richmond, Surrey and White Rock.
Fraser Valley, specifically Mission.
Yellow delivery service alerts were issued for the following regions:
Vancouver Island, specifically Campbell River, Courtenay, Duncan, Ladysmith, Qualicum Beach and Victoria.
Metro Vancouver, including Burnaby.
Fraser Valley, specifically Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Maple Ridge.
An alert can be issued for a particular community or an entire province, depending on the weather event.
Today’s service alerts will be posted on Canada Post’s service alerts webpage, which lists all active and archived alerts and updates here.
