Register delivery changes on the way

Next to printing a high-quality newspaper each week, there is nothing more important than getting The Catholic Register into the hands of our readers in a timely, cost-effective manner.

For many years, that has meant using Canada Post as our primary delivery method. But over the next few weeks The Register will cease using the mailman to deliver the paper to the vast majority of our readers.

Instead, The Register has entered into an agreement with an independent distributor to take over home delivery to almost all our subscribers in the Greater Toronto Area and some other adjoining regions.

For those affected, this will mean faster delivery. The paper we print overnight each Tuesday will be in your mailbox (or, if you wish, on your doorstep) by Thursday morning. This new arrangement also allows us to dodge the crippling impact of ever-rising postal rates, which means there will be no increase in The Register’s subscription price for the sixth consecutive year.

Readers in many parts of southern Ontario have been justifiably upset in recent months that, due to various issues with Canada Post, their papers have been arriving late. Now some 26,000 subscribers will be guaranteed speedy delivery and, if an issue does arise, a replacement paper will be dispatched the same day.

For those outside the affected areas, you will continue to receive your paper through Canada Post, and we will continue to monitor their service and intervene when necessary.

Finally, our distributor has agreed to not deliver advertising flyers or any unrequested materials to our readers. All you should receive each week is your copy of The Register, delivered faster than ever.
