Canada Post Service Disruption
In the event of a Canada Post mail strike, measures are in place to ensure Saskatchewan citizens can produce proof of health care coverage and have access to obtain birth, marriage, and death certificates.
Despite these measures, processing times may be impacted during this period. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
1. "Confirmation of Coverage" Letter – Health cards will not be mailed in the event of a Canada Post service disruption. Instead, a "Confirmation of Coverage" letter may be requested and sent as a temporary replacement for a physical health card. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-667-7551 to request this service.
2. Vital Event Certificates (Birth, Marriage, Death)- Vital Event certificates will not be mailed in the event of a Canada Post disruption.
- Citizens have the option of picking up a certificate in person at the eHealth counter. If the citizen cannot pick up the certificate themselves, they may authorize a 3rd party to pick it up on their behalf. An authorization form must be completed and identification must be presented.

- If a certificate is urgently needed, a citizen has the option to have the document couriered to them for an additional fee of $30. To request this service please email email@example.com or call 1-800-667-7551.
