Chit Chats An Alternative to Canada Post During Canada Post Lockout

As you may know, Canada Post will be in a legal lock out position on July 2nd, 2016.

As a result, we are writing to advise you that Thursday, June 23rd, 2016, is the last day that Chit Chats will accept packages for Canada Post due to their impending labour disruption.

Recognizing the negative effect this may have on your business, we have proactively sought out alternative arrangements to ensure that you will have continued service within Canada, despite the potential Canada Post lockout/strike.

We have partnered with companies like Canpar and UPS to offer you an alternative to Canada Post during the lock out/strike period.

While we tried very hard not to increase our costs, partnering with other carriers during this period is more expensive.

Effective, Thursday, June 3rd, 2016, our flat rate within Canada will increase to $12.00 CAD per piece, plus $1.50 per kg (with increments of 0.5 kg).

In order to make this transition as smooth as possible for you and our team, the process for preparing your packages will  remain the same (generic label with recipient information and your information in the return address field), with the addition of one extra step. This step will include filling out an additional form for each shipment you send with us during the service disruption.
