Amazon Expands delivery options for customers across Canada
Amazon has launched Amazon Pickup Points, a new delivery option where customers can choose to pick up Amazon.ca orders from Canada Post retail locations across the country. With more than 6,200 Canada Post locations, customers can find an Amazon Pickup Point that is convenient for them.
Alexandre Gagnon, Country Manager for Amazon Canada, said: "We're continuously working to introduce new programs and shipping options that make our customers' lives easier. We know the holidays get busy, so we're excited to introduce Amazon Pickup Points which give customers who are always on the go a convenient and secure alternative to receive Amazon.ca packages.
With the holiday season in full swing, shoppers can choose to have their orders shipped to a Canada Post location, ensuring gifts remain a surprise until they are unwrapped. With Amazon Pickup Points, shoppers also don't have to worry about missing an important delivery – whether it's a child's most wished for holiday toy or a package that may need a signature for delivery.
Deepak Chopra, President and CEO at Canada Post, said: "Canadians want delivery options that suit their busy lifestyles. By providing access to our 6,200 locations across the country, Amazon.ca is adding unparalleled convenience for its customers."
Customers can still take advantage of a variety of shipping options including Free Super Saver Shipping and Free Two-Day Shipping with Amazon Prime on eligible orders when shipping to an Amazon Pickup Point.
During the checkout process, customers simply select an Amazon Pickup Point location as their shipping address, receive a delivery confirmation e-mail when the order is delivered, and collect their package at their convenience.

How to Attend
In a COVID-disrupted era, we know that the majority of people would rather avoid travelling for events─why take the risk, right? In response to the continued disruption, BizClik Media Group has decided that Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will offer the best of both worlds through hybrid accessibility.
That means you and your peers can attend the event in person or virtually ─ with no disadvantages for people who choose not to make the trip to the Tobacco Dock venue.
Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will be held at the Tobacco Dock in London, an industry-leading venue that is renowned for delivering world-class events. For attendees’ peace of mind, the venue is working to the government-endorsed AEV All Secure Framework, alongside mia’s AIM Secure and ‘Good to Go’ accreditation, they will ensure that we achieve a COVID-secure environment to facilitate all of your networking needs.
Our physical venue is both historic and stunning, but it has no bearing on the information that you and your peers can gain from the event. You can still absorb it all, interact with other attendees, and enjoy the conference experience on your alternative, virtual platform.
The platform will feature live feeds from all of the stages, as well as virtual networking areas. So, if you want to avoid travel, it’s not a problem! You can still get involved and enjoy the entire experience from the comfort of your own home.
