Postal Disruption

The City of St. Catharines is prepared for the current postal disruption and is taking steps to reduce its effects on City business. Rotating strike action has been taking place in communities across the country and may lead to a potential disruption in St. Catharines.

The City suggests the residents avoid sending the City the following in the mail until after the possibility of a postal disruption has passed:

  • time-sensitive information
  • payments

Residents with questions or looking for more information about City services and payments during a possible postal disruption can contact Citizens First at 905.688.5600.

Correspondence

During a postal disruption, the City will deliver public notices and time-sensitive correspondence required by legislation by hand or by courier.

Residents can deliver time-sensitive information to the City in person:

  • Monday to Friday

Payments

 

Everyone is required to make their payments to the City on-time , even if they have not received notice by post that payments are due.

  • Property tax payments
    Final bills mailed in June
  • Water / wastewater bill payments
    Arrangements made to deliver water / wastewater bills ahead of a possible postal disruption.

Anyone who hasn’t received notice for payment from the City should call Citizens First at 905.688.5600.

Payments can be made in person with cash, cheque or debit card:
