Shipping, Canada Post, and Labour Disruptions

The primary shipping method for WithAPast is via Canada Post.  It's affordable, reliable, and convenient.  We have been shipping orders via Canada Post for over three years, with very few issues.

Currently, Canada Post is facing revolving strikes by employees that have the potential to get much worse if an agreement isn't reached very soon.  If employees are legislated back to work, the current backlog of mail and parcels that is awaiting delivery will make it impossible to guarantee order arrivals before Christmas.  

Order delivery via courier is a possibility, however it's usually much more expensive than Canada Post and courier companies are likely facing an increased load as well.

We are closely monitoring the labour issues at Canada Post and will update this blog posting as new information becomes available.  In the meantime, if you are considering placing an order on any item that you need to arrive before the holidays, please send us an e-mail and we can discuss various shipping options.

Potential Work Disruption at Canada Post

Please note that there is a good possibility of a labour disruption at Canada Post  by July 2nd, 2016.  As the majority of purchases on the WithAPast website are delivered via Canada Post Expedited Parcel Post service, any labour disruption will have a major impact on our operations.  

In the event of a strike or lockout at Canada Post, we will be shipping packages to their destination via UPS, DHL or Purolator Courier.  This is a more costly option than Canada Post however, so please e-mail us for an accurate quote on shipping before placing an order on our website.

We apologize for the inconvenience and remain hopeful that employees and management at Canada Post are able to come to an agreement before July 2nd.  If that's not the case, we're hopeful that the issues will be resolved as quickly as possible.
