Sending letters to the North Pole

At this time of year, Santa's workload increases. That's why the elves have to help him with the mail. Children wishing to send a letter to Santa can take advantage of the parade to do so. The elves will collect the letters, so that they are sent to the right place. If you want a reply, don't forget to include a return address inside your letter.

Don't forget to write the mailing address on the envelope:


Santa Claus

North Pole

H0H 0H0



Letters will be deposited at Canada Post.
