The company is adding more than 4,000 temporary seasonal employees and more than 1,000 vehicles to its fleet to keep up this holiday season.

Canada Post is asking people to shop early for the holiday season to help reduce the chances of significant delays.

With holiday surges, packages come in throughout a short period of time which can lead to slowed down deliveries.

Back in April, Canada Post was getting Christmas-like levels of packages to deliver and there were delays.

Last year the deadline to have things be delivered by Christmas was December 11 but that could be earlier this year if there are lots of parcels to get out.
