I'm moving: do I have to redirect my mail with Canada Post ?

It is not a necessity to have your mail redirected using Canada Post.

So I don’t have to inform the post office of my new address ? The answer is very simple: Post Canada offers a paid service to have your mail redirected to your new address – it’s a Mail Forwarding service. Although it is still mandatory to make your changes of address when you move, redirecting your mail is an optional service.

Why would I have to redirect my mail using Post Canada?

I receive very little mail

This service is not the best for you. However, it does not mean that you get a pass from completing all of your changes of address. 

I receive a lot of mail

This service will most likely be a safety net for you: If you forgot to inform one of your service providers of your new address for example, this mail forwarding service will redirect your mail to your new address. However, you can avoid the cost of this service if you have already completed all of your address changes for free with MovingWaldo.

Wishing you a successful move!
