Half of city’s Canada Post customers to move to new location after it opens next year
Iqaluit is getting a second full-service post office.
The city of about 8,000 will see the new location open next year, Canada Post announced in a news release Tuesday. It will be a full-service post office in the Astro Hill complex.
“Creating a second post office is a response to sustained growth in online shopping in the community,” the release said.
Half of the city’s Canada Post customers will have their mail and P.O. Box addresses transferred, once boundary areas are determined.
The parcel pickup facility at 1057 Mivvik St. will also close as a result of the additional office downtown.
