MAIL SERVICE DISRUPTION DUE TO WILDFIRES

********UPDATE********

JULY 11, 2017

 

BC Mail Plus

The BC Mail Plus Housemail system will operate as usual, with the exception of Housemail to and from 100 Mile House, Williams Lake and parts of Quesnel. Some shipments in the Housemail system may be delayed due to road and highway closures.

BC Mail Plus will continue to deposit into the Purolator and Canada Post systems the mail and courier items destined for these communities affected by the wildfires. Purolator and Canada Post will move these items in their systems as far as they can then hold these items in their local depots until it is safe to make the end delivery or alternate delivery locations have been established.

Should BC Mail Plus customers have mail and courier items that need to be delivered into these communities, alternate delivery locations will need to be arranged by our customers with input from the receiver of the mail or courier item.

Please contact your local BC Mail Plus office if you require further information.


Update from Purolator

Due to road closures and evacuation orders resulting from wildfires active in areas of Interior B.C., we are not able to service some parts of this region. As such, we are currently experiencing pickup and delivery delays in Ashcroft, Cache Creek, 100 Mile House, Williams Lake and Quesnel.

Freight that is coming in and out of these areas will be held at the closest Purolator facility until service resumes. We are working through plans to restore normal service in the area, while ensuring the safety of our employees and aligning with government guidelines and protocols.

Please continue to visit purolator.com for the most up-to-date tracking on shipments and service updates


Update from Canada Post

Canada Post is working on contingency measures to serve the residents of British Columbia displaced by the fires. We will communicate details as soon as possible, as delivery is currently suspended to the areas of: Ashcroft, Cache Creek, 100 Mile House, 108 Mile House, Lac la Hache, Little Fort, Alexis Creek, Hanceville, Nemiah Valley, 150 Mile House, Riske Creek, Miocene, Horsefly, Big Lake, Likely, Williams Lake, Anahim Lake, Nimpo Lake, and parts of Quesnel. All mail and parcels destined for these locations will be held securely until plans are in place. We thank those affected for their patience in this difficult time.
