Canada post: how often do they pick up mail from mailboxes?

I noticed that some mailboxes say the hours are 11 am to 4 pm while others will only say 4pm. So, how many flights would canada post have out of vancouver to the east and out of country?

Send it expresspost and it will take 3 days. Quit worrying.

Regular mailboxes outside are once/day I believe.

Unless you're shipping it overnight it goes on a truck, even Xpresspost.

If you're talking about Those Red boxes, I believe they are all at least once a day (at 5pm) but ones that are busier tend to have a pickup at 9am and at 5pm.


* This is in Ontario, and i'm guessing it will depend on which province you're in. If it says 4pm out in Vancouver it's probably 4pm everyday (and 8am as well on busy ones)

No it does not. Only overnight. Most Xpresspost packages, envelopes going OTR (over the road). Most regular mail goes by train, unless there is bad weather.
