Public Notice : Snow Removal and Accessibility in Central Elgin
Canada Post Community Mailboxes
Canada Post is responsible for removal of snow around the community mailboxes. However, there may be times when the snow is not removed consistently, making it difficult for residents to access the mailboxes.
In the event that this happens, Canada Post has a reporting system on their website that allows a service ticket to be created to ensure the issue is addressed.
The Canada Post website states the following:
If there’s snow around your mailbox that’s preventing you from getting your mail you’ll need to create a service ticket. We’ll have it cleared for you as quickly as possible.
If you can’t retrieve your mail from the mailbox due to snow buildup, you can request snow clearance online by visiting the Create A Service Ticket page.
For support on how to create a service ticket, please visit either of the following links:
If you are unable to create a service ticket using the online platform, you may reach out to the Accessibility Coordinator for assistance at: 519-631-1460 ext: 167 or by visiting the following link and filling out the Feedback Form: Accessibility Page for Elgin County.
