OTTAWA, June 16, 2011 /CNW/ - Despite the ongoing labour disruption,
Canada Post wants to reassure our customers that socio-economic cheques
will be delivered. An agreement was reached with the Canadian Union of
Postal Workers (CUPW) in March 2011 to ensure delivery of more than two
million cheques nationally on June 20th.
The following cheques will be delivered on June 20:
Receiver General of Canada:
Canada Pension Plan
Old Age Security
Veterans' Affairs Pension Plan
Canada Child Tax Benefit
Some provinces opted to have their socio-economic cheques delivered by
Canada Post, while others did not. The following cheques will be
delivered on June 20:
Pension Cheques (from Alberta Seniors)
These cheques will be delivered to eligible Canadians on June 20 by
regular mail delivery. Please ensure you check your mail box or visit
your local post office if you are expecting any of the socio-economic
cheques mentioned above.
For customers who receive their regular mail delivery via general
delivery at a post office or via a postal box, all post offices will be open on June 20 to allow customers to retrieve their cheques. Offices that have been
closed due to the work disruption will be open for the day for cheque
pick-up only and will not handle any other retail transactions.
Customers can visit canadapost.ca/cheques for further information.
Delivering during a work disruption is a huge challenge, but Canada Post
is committed to delivering these important cheques to the Canadians who
count on receiving them.
