Canada Post Gearing up for Letters to Santa

Every year, Canada Post receives more than 1.5 million letters, cards and lists


Every year, kids from across the country write to Santa, and every year, Canada Post works hard to make sure those letters reach the North Pole – and that Santa’s replies reach their destination too. 

With Christmas less than 40 days away, Canada Post is encouraging Canadians to get their letters in to Santa before it’s too late.

With sacks of letters “arriving at the North Pole,” Canada Post said it’s helping Santa out with his mail.

Canada Post said it’s free to write a letter to Santa – no stamps are required. But the deadline to get a reply from the Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick is coming up fast. Canada Post said to have all letters, complete with a return address, mailed by Thursday, Dec. 12, to guarantee a reply from Santa.

To get a letter to Santa, send your mail to this address:

  •  Santa Claus
    North Pole
    H0H 0H0

Canada Post said Santa answers the letters in more than 30 different languages including braille. All countries are welcome to participate.
