Canada Post is getting ready to deliver approximately 13.5 million pre-paid postcards, one to every residential address nationwide, for people to send to whomever they want in the country.
There are six versions of the postcard, each one offering a simple message of love, appreciation or thanks.
According to Canada Post, every household will receive one randomly selected postcard, starting March 1, which they can send to someone in Canada for free – no stamps are needed.
The postcards are part of Canada Post’s “Write Here Write Now” program, launched in September 2020 to encourage Canadians to use letter writing to connect with friends and family.
“Meaningful connection is vital for our emotional health, sense of community and overall well-being,” said Doug Ettinger, president and CEO of Canada Post.
“Canada Post wants everyone to stay safe, but also stay in touch with the people who matter to them.”

Canadians are encouraged to share photos and videos of sending and receiving their postcards using #WriteHereWriteNow.
