Approximately 13.5 million postcards will be sent to Canadians across the country starting this March.
The new initiative from Canada Post called “Write Here Write Now,” which first launched last fall, encourages Canadians to stay connected with their friends and loved ones.
Households will receive a free postage-paid postcard that can be sent to any friend or family member across the country — no stamps needed. The postcards will also have one of six unique designs. Each has a message of love, appreciation, or thanks.
They can be dropped off at a street letter or community mailbox or taken to a post office.
“Meaningful connection is vital for our emotional health, sense of community and overall well-being,” says Doug Ettinger, President and CEO of Canada Post, in an emailed statement.
“Canada Post wants everyone to stay safe, but also stay in touch with the people who matter to them.
Over the next few weeks, Canadian households will be receiving a free postcard from Canada Post. #WriteHereWriteNow
