Letters to Santa – Important Dates For Parents!

Canada is one of the few places where when you mail your letters to Santa, he writes back! It must be because we’re so nice! It’s time to make your list, check it twice, and hope that Santa sees you when you’re being nice! Here is how and where to send letters to Santa.

Who Is Mailing Letters To Santa?

These are some impressive statistics, directly from the North Pole! When you think of how many kids write to Santa each year, it’s amazing to know that so many of them get a letter back, personally written by Santa Claus!

There’s room for everyone on the Nice List! Santa’s Canada Post volunteer elves are ready to help answer your letters in more than 30 languages, including Braille!

3 things to remember when Mailing Letters To Santa

  1. Make sure to include your full return address. Santa may know where you live, but his postal elves need this information to deliver your letter!
  2. Santa really loves to read about children’s favourite sports, jokes, school activities or family fun (even if Mom and Dad help with the writing). And, of course, he loves to get pictures and drawings from even his youngest pen pals!
  3. Send your letter soon. December 9, 2022 is the last day to mail letters (it’s a long way to the North Pole and back!). Letters mailed after December 9 may not receive a reply before Christmas. Bonus: no postage is required!

More Fun From Canada Post

The Canada Post website has a variety of printable stationery pages, including some fill-in-the-blank style for early writers. And Santa’s Village at Canada Post has thought of everything, including 3 emergency letters, when the North Pole mail just doesn’t make it back to you in time.

And before you put pen to paper, our friend Rochelle tells us how to write a mindful letter. It’s a great way to have kids be present when they ask Jolly Ol’ St. Nick for presents!

  1. My baby 19 months old wrote a letter to Santa clause we didn’t put a stamp on the envelope because it’s not required, we put a return adresse but his letter was returned to us, can you tell me why is that?

    P.S. Broken hearted

    1. Sorry, I have no idea. Did you write that it was a letter to Santa? With the mailing address as above? Was the letter opened then returned or just returned?
