Nothing in the mail yet but, of all my financial institutions, only Vancouver City Savings Credit Union was able to give me my T5 data "unofficially" by phone. Though their systems have the info, they won't tell me. All named dates in mid-to-late February.

Not sure Canada Post has same feature out west, but in Ontario you can sign up and they will let u know ‘arriving mail’ by email. This way you know what’s on the way.

But I remember you being very tech ‘careful’ so that may not be for you.

savemoresaveoften: Canada Post isn't involved. I called up all the financial institutions and asked them. Unless you meant that I should look into that arrangement. It wouldn't help me much anyway without knowing the contents of the E-mail.

I don't give out an E-mail address to any entity that bills or notifies me, as some of them will now stop mailing if they have an E-mail address. And E-mail is unreliable and insecure. If E-mail goes down, goes to spam, is blocked for the whole domain due to spam or whatever reason, one gets no notifications and the penalties start piling up.

Yes CanadaPost provides a free service that sends u email to let u know what snail mail are arriving. Obv it won’t show the contents, but it will tell who the sender is.

Re email being insecure, not sure what associated equipment / email service u use. Gmail requires strong unique pass key for each authorized device to access email. It can be intercepted if ur authorized device is not secure to begin with, but it’s almost possible to crack brute force password hacking.

I will rely on email any day over snail mail. You seem to be paranoid about email, and prefer to have ur faith in an century old system that are prone to human errors. Plus the post office strikes that happen every few years like clock work, no thanks.

I found only for packages????

I am also intrigued by this. Just did a search on Canada Post website and found this:

https://www.canadapost-postescanada.ca/cpc/en/personal/receiving/manage-mail/mymail.page

No idea how it actually works - do they send a photo of your mail?

It seems you can only do these things in their app. I signed up after years of not using canadapost online due to it's lack of functionality and that was a mistake to think they have changed. Sure, they take your information, but then after that I can't do anything on my computer and I don't have a smartphone. I can't see a dashboard or anything. I just login and get useless pages telling me what I can do, but no option to do anything and no access to my profile or options and I've tried on multiple computers, browsers and various level of security.

Sure, this could be a great idea if it works for you, but for me, canada posts execution is again a big failure. Maybe someone else is able to do these things on your computers, but unless someone confirms otherwise, looks like this is smartphone access only.

savemoresaveoften: There are lots of ways to limit access to an E-mail interface, but unless you're using end-to-end encryption (and of some sort that current crooks and governments can't crack) the contents travel in the clear. They're vulnerable to anyone along the transmission path. Financial institutions always warn their clients that they use E-mail at their own risk.

(and saying you're glad that law enforcement can crack your E-mail seems pretty silly when foretign, hostile or crooked governments are out there)

For those concerned about privacy, the sender info is in their system in the cloud, whether you like it or not . Its NOT physical, paper trail only as one may think. Weclome to 2024 🙂

I said that ?? I did ?? When ??

For the record, I am saying snail mall is LESS secure than a proper email.
A email does NOT hold any critical info and more or less a notice to ask you to log in to access the statements etc. If you receive email from your FIs that has critical info on the email, I like to know which one it is to avoid it. Dont think you can provide an example tho cuz that is very basic FI email engagement protocol that all FIs are aware of.

A snail mail on the other hand is zero security if its mis delivered, whether it goes to ur neighbor or another province, crooks or not.

That's happened to me both ways ...

1. Opening something only to see it's the neighbour's bank statement.

2. One of our neighbours doing the same to one of my investment statements.

I also had the same thing happen with an Amazon delivery a few years back. I got the SMS and email notifications that the package was delivered. But it wasn't here. The attached picture showed the package at the front door, just not our front door. Same house number, parallel street, two blocks away. I recognized the front door. I walked over to pick it up ...

It used to be that some billers were sending full bills attached to emails as PDF file. While convenient, that were woefully insecure and you are right about it. Historically.

Nowadays emails from every biller and FI I deal with are nothing more than notification: "You have a bill, you owe that much, due by that date. Login to our Web site to see details of your bill."

When comes to CRA, their emails are even more abstract: "You've got correspondence, login to CRA My Account to check it."

Very Interesting!!!
I already had account at Canada Post and setting an app was simple.
My concern was/is that it looks like when they verify your identity they access who knows what database. As a name I had initials but that did not work so had to provide full name and date of birth and of course full correct address.
Only then my identity was confirmed (and it looks like I can confirm it at post office most likely presenting some government ID) and they count how many time you tried to confirm your identity... Do knot know what would happen if you exhaust all attempts...
I would say WAY TO MANY info they require, store and potentially expose to crooks and hackers.
'Good news' is Bulk Barn flyer is on the way.
This might be beneficial for infirmed people who cannot walk to community box every day but so far little daily fresh air is welcomed by me.

THANK you MG for providing that link!

I did the same, signed up but then blank advantages. So I found an e-mail contact and wrote:
" Hello. I signed up with Canada Post today in order to get the MyMail option that I see can give me notices by e-mail of upcoming mail deliveries. I don't have a smartphone.
Is the google play store app compatible with Windows 10 computers? If not, what is the procedure to get MyMail or otherwise be advised by e-mail of future deliveries? "
Answer: " Thank you for your email. Unfortunately, MyMail is currently only available on Android and iOS. Unfortunately, we do not support Windows 10 for MyMail. "
Bizarre. We are talking about e-mail advice's, not SMS. Useless. What's the fastest way to delete my account. sf-yell

The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to
annoy people who are not in them.

savemoresaveoften: Sorry, I should have better separated my last paragraph from the rest. I just tacked it on because I couldn't remember where there had been conversation about web dangers that provoked some other users to protest I shouldn't be defending privacy from law enforcement. Perhaps in some discussion of genetic testing?

It's true that real mail can be stolen or misdirected. But it's always had very strong legal safeguards, and it's not an error that can be planned and executed by a malicious entity. The exceptions are supermailboxes and outdoor porch mailboxes.

The many deficiencies of E-mail are legion and well known.
