Communication via mail and/or parcels is not only important to CAF members and PSP employees while they are deployed but is also uplifting and morale building for the individual who is away and the family members who remain at home. The Centre will accept parcels from family members of absent Canadian Forces members (Regular Force and Reservist) and PSP employees who are deployed/absent from their families on international missions or at CFS Alert for a period of thirty (30) days or more. This service is provided to family members at no charge.
Please refer to the Canada.ca guidelines to review instructions for mailing overseas.
The parcel service can be accessed by contacting the CFB Borden mailroom at 705-424-1200 ext. 2178 or by contacting the Borden Family Resource Centre’s reception by phone at 705-424-1200 ext. 3994 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Families who do not live close to or are unable to get to CFB Borden may take the parcel to any Canada Post outlet. However, in this case they will be expected to pay the correct postage to Belleville, ON.
It is important for families to understand that theses guidelines differ on each Base and may not be in accordance with the guidelines given to the CAF member or PSP employee prior to departure. Following these guidelines allows the parcels to be delivered as quickly as possible.
Should a parcel contain nuts or nut products, it must be clearly indicated on the list of contents.
