Canada Post Raises Rates

Share this content:
Canada Post Corp. will increase U.S. and other international rates and domestic lettermail rates today.


Rates for letters, cards and postcards up to 30 grams destined for the United States will increase by 5 cents (Canadian) to 65 cents. There will be a 20-cent increase to $1.25 for letters, cards and postcards to other foreign destinations. However, Canada Post said the base weight for the international basic letter rate will rise from 20 grams to 30 grams.


In addition, the domestic basic letter rate will increase by 1 cent to 48 cents. Rate increases of 2 percent to 3 percent for other domestic regulated lettermail also have been approved.


Rates for addressed admail, including catalogs and other categories used by direct marketers, will increase by a weighted average of 3.6 percent April 1.


Meanwhile, Group 1 Software, a provider of customer relationship management software and services, received regulatory approval from Canada Post last month for the new version of its SortStream Canada postal presort solution. SortStream Canada presorts mailings according to CPC regulations. Group 1, Lanham, MD, said the software would work with these rates as well.


SortStream Canada also now meets the requirements of the U.S. Postal Service's Global Direct Canada Admail program. This program, offered in alliance with CPC, provides U.S. direct marketers more convenient, cost-effective and timely delivery of marketing materials and periodicals into Canada.
