Wednesday is the deadline to send packages through Canada Post if you want them to arrive by Christmas

The crown corporation says almost a million and a half packages are moved every day around the Christmas season

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Mailing a Christmas gift? Your deadline to send it through Canada Post is today.

That’s if you want it to get to its destination within Canada by the 25th without paying an extra charge.

The crown corporation says almost a million and a half packages are moved every day around the Christmas season.

And if you were hoping to send a parcel to arrive by Christmas Day to the U.S. by regular mail, you’re out of luck.

That deadline was yesterday, unless you want to shell out some more cash for shipping.
