How to reduce advertising mail

Canada Post is dedicated to serving every Canadian across the country, and we respect your choices regarding how much advertising mail you receive.

We deliver two types of advertising mail: addressed and unaddressed. To reduce the amount of these materials in your mailbox, please follow the steps outlined below.

Please note

Even if you follow the steps outlined on this page, we are still required to continue delivering:

  • Community newspapers (without commercial inserts/enclosures) – only inserts in the public interest are acceptable
  • Mailings in the public interest from government departments and agencies at the federal, provincial, territorial and municipal levels, as well as band councils
  • Materials from Elections Canada, provincial/territorial chief electoral officers and municipal election officials (or the deputy returning officer), including material from political parties and electoral candidates during an election
  • Any mail addressed to you, including addressed advertising materials
