How many more rate changes can we expect?
In recent years, Canada Post has introduced the majority of changes to postage and parcel rates in January, however, new rates can be introduced intermittently, which will require additional updates to all mailing systems. Neopost Canada offers rate change protection through our MailCare Service Programs to ensure that our customers will not incur additional fees if Canada Post introduces multiple rate changes during a single calendar year.
