Canada Post is back up and running in many regions throughout British Columbia today, including Courtenay.
Due to poor air quality caused by smoke from forest fires in the western United States, the delivery service suspended its services across much of the province yesterday.
Full mail delivery was restored today to these regions:
- Campbell River
- Mayne Island
- Okanagan Valley
However, a “Yellow service alert” is still in effect for a handful of regions. This means Canada Post is going to do its best to deliver.
Regions currently under a “Yellow service alert” include:
- Delta (added Sept. 16th)
- Maple Ridge (added Sept. 16th)
- Parts of Metro Vancouver
- Mission (added Sept. 16th)
- New Westminster
- Penticton (added Sept. 16th)
- Powell River
- Greater Victoria area
- White Rock
Meanwhile, Castlegar and Trail are still under a “Red service alert.” This means Canada Post is suspending delivery for the day, as air quality conditions are unsafe. Delivery will resume once it is deemed safe to do so.
