More than 9,000 Canada Post volunteers, both staff and retirees, are helping with Canada Post's Write to Santa program. Every year, over a million children from all around the world take advantage of the program by writing to Santa and receiving a reply. Letters are answered in the language in which the letter was written, including Braille.
Canada Post asks parents to make sure letters to Santa do not include treats for Santa, like cookies. All mail should include a return address so Santa can answer. Be sure to mail your letter so it gets to Santa before December 17. Santa's mailing address is:SANTA CLAUS
NORTH POLE H0H 0H0
Tips for Teachers
In order for Santa to write the best letters, his elves need some information about each child. Here are some templates for students to use to make sure letters are magical.
Teachers are asked to follow and complete this checklist and include it with your class package of letters to Santa.
To make sure your students get a response before Christmas, mail your classroom letters by December 12.
