Important things you need to know about sending and receiving your mail
You must have the following information all included when mailing letters, parcels, etc to anyone. Please see the following example:
14 Panuke Rd
Windsor, NS B0N 2T0
You will note that it must include name, civic address as well as your rural route address, town or community and postal code to ensure that all mail is received as it should be.
Why is this important?
Example - people receiving government mail such as GST cheques, income tax returns, child tax benefits, etc. will not receive your mail if it is not properly addressed. Some issues that have occured in the past have been people listing just their RR# or mail box numbers - not both as is now required.
