MPI Puts Plan in Place to Deal with Postal Strike

By Brian Schultz

Manitoba Public Insurance has put a contingency plan in place to deal with the rotating Canada Post strike that began in Winnipeg Thursday night.

Claim, refund cheques and other important business mail will be sorted by customers’ postal code and distributed to Manitoba Public Insurance Service Centres/Claim Centres relevant to each customer’s postal code for pick-up.

Customers will need to show identification at the time of pick-up. To find your closest location, visit

Licensing and auto insurance payments can be made in-person at any Manitoba Autopac location.

Postal workers will be back on the job Monday, while a second group of unionized workers go on strike in another region.
