Christmas gifts could be late due to the ongoing weather on Vancouver Island.

As several public services throughout Victoria are currently cancelled or suspended due to extreme weather conditions, mail delivery is being impacted as well.


In its latest update, Canada Post says most of the country is currently under red or yellow alert.

A red alert means delivery is cancelled, yellow means it may be delayed.

As of Friday, December 23rd, Victoria is included in the yellow alert with deliveries either cancelled or delayed for today.

Freezing rain is forecasted to affect many parts of Vancouver Island including Greater Victoria, the Southern Gulf Islands and the Malahat.

Environment Canada advised taking extra care when walking or driving today as surfaces including highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.

Mail deliveries will resume once road conditions improve. To stay updated on service interruptions you can follow Canada Posts delivery alerts.
