The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) has decided to give Canada Post strike notices, which mean they could commence strike action as early as midnight on Monday, October 22, 2018. Canada Post will remain open for business, continuing to operate if the union decides to conduct rotating strikes across the country next week but customers may experience some delays.

We, at Ava's Appletree, have compared shipping rates across the board and noticed that shipping rates of other mail carriers have been significantly higher (up to 3 times higher). We decided to continue shipping with Canada Post and hope that orders continue to ship in a timely manner. If you require a more reliable shipping option, please feel free to get in touch with us and we'll be happy to send you a quote for an alternative carrier.
