Addressing

  • Proper Addressing of Mail

    Since August 31, 2009, 85% of all mail that has been returned to sender was due to an incorrect or missing postal code. Your mail will be processed and delivered more timely, efficiently and consistently when all of the required components are used.

    To ensure delivery each piece of mail, it must have the following information:

    • Name of the recipient
    • Unit or apartment name/number
    • House/Building number
    • Street name
    • Parish and Postal Code


    A Return to Sender address on the top/bottom left corner or back of the envelope is helpful. In the event that the piece of mail can not be delivered it can be returned to the sender quickly and easily.

    Download the address correction form which you can use to update your contacts with your correct address.


    Non-compliance will result in non-delivery of mail.

  • House number and mailbox will be mandatory



    Effective August 31, 2009, Post Office regulations state all homes must have the house number in a visible area of the property and the post box must be located as close as practicable to the highway or private road boundary entrance to the property.

    Non-compliance will result in non-delivery of mail.

     

    Letter addressed incorrectly will be returned to sender.


  • Letters incorrectly addressed will be returned to sender
    Effective August 31, 2009, Post Office regulations state that the mail will only be delivered to a person's street address if there is a complete address including the correct postal code.

    Non-compliance will result in non-delivery of mail.
  • Business Requirements


    Effective August 31, 2009, Post Office regulations state that all multi-story commercial buildings will require a cluster-box unit, or a centralized reception area, on the ground floor for delivery to all tenants in that building. 
     
    Non-compliance will result in non-delivery of mail.
  • Condominium Requirements


    Effective August 31, 2009, Post Office regulations state that all condominium developments will require a cluster-box unit, or a centralized reception area, on the ground floor in a multi-story building to ensure delivery. 
     
    Non-compliance will result in non-delivery of mail.
  • Return to sender (RTS)


    When receiving a piece of mail marked RTS you should check the stamp for the reason that the mail is being returned, place in a new envelope ensuring that you use the corrected address information, affix correct postage and then mail the letter again. A piece of mail that has already been in the postal network will not be processed after being returned without new postage.
     
    Non-compliance will result in non-delivery of mail.
