If you want to send a package to a loved one overseas, Canada Post will accept regular parcels until January 15, 2016, weighing up to 20 kilograms free of charge.
These parcels must go to designated overseas Canadian Armed Forces bases, and you must fill out a customs form. This link to the Government of Canada’s website has detailed information about sending care packages and morale mail to military members overseas.
The Calgary MFRC can help send your package! Contact our office at 403-410-2320 ext. 3590 if you have questions or to drop off parcels and mail here.
*If you want to send a Christmas parcel, the MFRC must have your package NO LATER THAN MONDAY, NOV. 16, 2015*
