Letters, parcels destined for there are being held securely, Canada Post says
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.
