Construction continues on Canada Post’s new state-of-the art, 65,000-square-metre facility at YVR is on target to be completed in 2014.

Located on Ferguson Road, the $200-million multi-purpose facility will process letters, parcels, packets and advertising mail under one roof.

Canada Post’s real estate strategy now places a priority on building regional headquarters near airports, not rail hubs.

In 2010, Canada Post opened a $100-million, 25,548-square-metre mail sorting plant near Winnipeg’s James Armstrong Richardson Airport, replacing a 52-year-old plant in that city’s downtown core.
