Canada Mail Forwarding Form Instructions

Here is how you should complete Form 33-086-784:

  1. Indicate whose mail must be forwarded and record the dates you would want the service to start and end.
  2. Explain why you want the mail to be forwarded - you are permanently relocating, temporarily moving, or there is another reason.
  3. Write down two addresses - the location where the mail must be forwarded from and the location you will receive your correspondence.
  4. State the names of mail recipients - only mail of these individuals will be forwarded.
  5. If you are moving, the post office may notify organizations you deal with about your relocation for your convenience - check the box if you do not want anyone else to know about your movements.
  6. Confirm your intention to subscribe to the mail forwarding service, enter your full name, telephone number, and email address.

You can apply for mail forwarding online using a Canada Post account or visit your local post office - the service will begin as early as three days after you submit the documentation. Note that you have to present identification with a photo and authorization if you are acting on behalf of another person or company. You will be asked to pay a residential fee if the mail will be addressed to individuals; businesses will pay a specific business fee.
