Canada Post can't locate a Canadian address.


Yes, seriously, they can't locate a legit Canadian address. I sent a package out to Canada on the 15th and got it back today. Tracking shows that Canada Post can't locate the address. The seller contacted me about the tracking info situation. He has confirmed that his PayPal address is correct and current. I managed to peel off the Canada Post sticker which was covering my USPS postal sticker. And asking the postal clerk if they can resend it without me paying double charge on the same package. She said she could resend it. Great. This time, I printed out the address labels instead and to tape them on the package. Before, I hand written them and my hand writing wasn't that bad that Canada Post can't read them. Has this happened to anyone here? I am beginning to hear about horror stories in shipping stuff to Canada. Some even goes so far to refuse shipping anything to Canada but they won't have problems sending stuff to places like China, Hong Kong, or Thailand.

I had that happen to me because my address was missing the suite number. Paypal had my confirmed address without the suite number which is strange. Also, sometimes the older generation like my parents, will list the suburb instead of the city. They combined all the surrounding cities around Toronto so now it's one big ... err.. city.

You can try adding instructions, maybe Canada Post will be able to figure it out.

Delivery Note: Past the beaver damn, sharp right into the Maple forest, a stone throw straight over the ice rink, door 3 on the left with the big Canadian flag.

Oh dear. I still refer to them as North York, Scarborough, Etobicoke, etc.

Anyone living in the Viger Street or Viger West in Montreal? Apparently, there are few ways to write this street, not sure how. I was instructed by the seller to write Viger West. Other addresses in the same street is written as Avenue Viger West.

I would use the French listing of the address, as shown on google maps

Hmmm...well, the seller paypal physical address is Viger West though. Well, let's see if the package would get back to me again this time. Maybe I would just refund his money and forget about ever sending anything to Canada again since Canada Post couldn't even setup a street naming standard.
