Visit your nearest post office to rent a postal box.

What you’ll need:

  • Government-issued photo ID 
  • Payment for the rental and key deposit
    • PO box rental prices vary depending on the size of the box, duration of the rental and whether it’s in a rural, urban or urban core location.
    • The key deposit is $15 plus applicable taxes for 2 keys. If a 24-hour security access key is required at your post office location, there is an additional deposit of $15.90 plus applicable taxes for 1 key. All key deposits are fully refundable when you return your keys.

You’ll need a letter of authorization if:

  • You would like someone else to be able to pick up your mail. Bring the letter of authorization with you when you rent your PO box (or later).
  • You want to rent a PO box on behalf of someone else or pick up their mail.

At the post office:

  1. Choose your rental period (3, 6 or 12 months) and sign the postal box rental agreement that details the  terms and conditions.
  2. Receive 2 keys for your box, and a key for the postal box lobby, if applicable.
  3. Begin receiving mail through your postal box address and pick it up when you like.
