Postage free

Good afternoon military community!

We just received this notification – of course we always love to see you when you come in to the MFRC to drop off care packages, but if it’s more convenient you can mail postage-free directly through your local Canada Post outlet.

You will still need to fill out customs forms, I’ve attached our instruction sheet about that and other requirements.

As you are aware, it may take up to 6 weeks for parcels to reach your loved one, so sending early is best!

Best regards,
Donna
