An important reminder from Canada Post to dog owners in Cornwall

A call for dog owners to work together to keep delivery drivers and neighbors safe

Every day our staff deliver to around 22,000 homes in Cornwall. Many of these households have dogs and our delivery drivers encounter them every day when delivering mail and packages. Our top priority is the safety of our employees, including safe access to mailboxes and the front door.

At Canada Post, we pride ourselves on delivering our customers’ packages and mail. That is why we must ensure that our employees can do this safely. This is our first priority and responsibility as an employer to every employee.

Our employees understand that dogs can sometimes protect their home and family. Very simple: our employees don’t know “What Daisy is going to do?” – Facebook post (social media dog awareness campaign).

To our customers with dogs, we ask for your cooperation in keeping our employees safe when we deliver mail in their neighborhood:

– Be careful when opening the door so that your dog does not slip out.

– Keep your dog indoors, in a fenced yard or tied up far from the front door or mailbox.

– Keep front doors and gates closed.

– Keep your dog away from the screen door, even if it is locked.

By sharing this post, you will help our staff deliver safely to all Canadians.
