Free postcards ask Canadians to re-connect ‘Write Here, Write Now’

To help Canadians stay in touch and re-connect with each other just short of one full year into the COVID-19 pandemic, Canada Post is delivering free prepaid postcards.

“Staying in touch can make a difference. When a hug isn’t possible, a handwritten message shows the people we care about that they’re on our mind and in our heart,” said Canada Post CEO Doug Ettinger, noting the initiative wouldn’t be possible without the support of Canada Post employees.

“Meaningful connection is important for our health, sense of community and overall well-being. So while you stay safe, please also stay in touch. It matters.”

Lillian Guernsey, who has been with Canada Post for some 25 years, says the Bloomfield Post Office will begin delivering the postcards on Monday. Approximately 13.5 million postcards are being delivered – one to every residential address in Canada.

With simple messages of love, appreciation or thanks, each address will receive one card which can be sent anywhere in Canada – no stamp required.

The postcards are part of the “Write Here Write Now” program, launched in September 2020 to encourage Canadians to use letter writing to connect in a heartfelt way.

    This is a touching initiative! Bravo! I agree that we should be connecting more by mail, and I’m trying to do my part.
    The message is important and the colours pleasant; as a visual artist I feel like it could have had a cheerful photo image as well. I’m tempted to find a small picture of a flower or robin to paste onto the card, or maybe a heart, and hope the Post Office don’t mind.
