Canada Post informed national postal operators (NPOs) worldwide of a state of emergency in British Columbia due to the flooding, rockslides, and mudslides in that province.
The alert, posted on the Universal Postal Union’s Emergency Information System, says, “Multiple road closures and damaged railway lines and bridges are affecting ground transportation and delivery operations across western Canada, and both inbound and outbound letter-post and parcel-post flows are suffering disruption. Canada Post has therefore declared a situation of force majeure. However, it asks designated operators to continue dispatching mails to Canada as normal. Updates can be found at
