Parcel Service

The most convenient, efficient and economical way to mail a letter or parcel to military personnel deployed on operations overseas is to use the Canadian Armed Forces Post Office, Belleville, Ontario address assigned to the particular deployment.

All rules and regulations regarding mail are set by Canada Post, with applicable postage required to get the package to Belleville. From there, the mail is handled by the Canadian Armed Forces Postal Service at no extra cost.

Some Military Family Resource Centres have systems in place to provide mailing services. This is the result of coordinated efforts between the local Military Family Resource Centre and the local commander, based on available resources. Contact your local Military Family Resource Centre directly to determine whether they provide this service (often referred to as morale mail) and, if so, how to access it.
