The Canada Post Corporation and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers failed to reach a deal on negotiating a new collective agreement. As a result, the postal workers began a strike and will not accept, process or deliver mail to you effective 11:59 PM EDT Thursday, June 2, 2011.
This will affect you if:
•you are submitting an application for temporary residence or wish to extend your status
•you are submitting a new application (permanent residence or citizenship) or missing documents
•your status is about to expire and you have not yet submitted an application to extend your status
•your status expires during the strike
•you are now out of status
•you have already sent your application but it might not have arrived before the strike
If you are applying from overseas and you have not already sent your application, you can send it by courier or wait until the end of the postal strike.
