Region of Peel Prepared for Possible Interruption of Postal Services

BRAMPTON, ON (May 25, 2011) – In the event of a strike by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), the Region of Peel will have information available at peelregion.ca to advise residents about alternate service arrangements. Information will be posted 72 hours in advance, the notice period required for strike action. 

The Region’s various programs and services will ensure that cheques and payments are made available to residents and businesses in the event of a Canada Post strike. Most Region of Peel service transactions are made through electronic funds transfer (EFT) and payments to vendors and clients using EFT will not be affected by a mail stoppage. However, several transactional services will be affected and plans are in place should a strike occur.

Residents are encouraged to visit peelregion.ca for information about service impacts, alternate arrangements, locations, hours of operation and maps.

The Regional Municipality of Peel was incorporated in 1974 on the principle that certain community and infrastructure services are most cost-effectively administered over a larger geographic area. The Region of Peel serves over 1.3 million residents in the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga and the Town of Caledon.

For more information on the Region of Peel, please call 905-791-7800, or visit peelregion.ca.
