Wildfires in the Northwest Territories are having an impact on mail delivery in five Nunavut communities, Canada Post announced Friday.

It said red delivery service alerts have been issued for Cambridge Bay, Gjoa Haven, Kugaaruk, Kugluktuk and Taloyoak, meaning mail is not getting in or out of those communities.

Wildfires and evacuation orders in the Yellowknife region are affecting its transportation network, Canada Post said in a news release.

It said all mail and parcels destined for those communities is being held securely at its Edmonton facility as it works on contingency plans to restart service there.

Updates are posted on Canada Post’s delivery service alerts webpage. For more information, phone 1-866-607-6301.

    It appears as if parcel service to Iqaluit has also been terminated…

      We haven’t received mail in almost two weeks. When I call Iqaluit they say they are severely behind and very limited mail has been being sent. Do you have more information on this?

      Front it , from your local dealer and pay it back with a ” two for one deal ” when your stuff comes in.

    Nunavut seems to also be a target for spam phone calls now.
