Canada Post Rates To Increase Jan. 1

Share this content:
Canada Post is reminding customers that new domestic, international and U.S. postal rates will take effect Jan. 1.


This is the first increase in regulated Canadian postal rates in two years. The new rates reflect changes in the cost to Canada Post of providing these services.


Canada Post announced July 1 that an increase in the domestic basic letter-mail rate (First Class in the United States) would take effect Jan. 1, raising the price of a stamp by 1 cent to 47 cents.


Under Canada Post's price-cap formula, the domestic basic letter-mail rate cannot exceed 66.67 percent of inflation as measured by the Consumer Price Index.


Postal rates for international and U.S. destinations will also increase effective Jan. 1. International rates will increase 10 cents to $1.05, and mail to the United States will increase by 5 cents.


The rate to the United States will remain significantly less than the rate the U.S. Postal Service charges on basic letters addressed to Canada. It will cost 60 cents to mail a letter from Canada to the United States compared with 82 cents to mail a letter to Canada from the United States.
