Undeliverable Publications Mail (uPM)—invest in future savings

For a fee, we'll notify you when your Publications Mail items are undeliverable. You can then remove invalid mailing addresses from your file. This lets you save on future mailings by improving the accuracy of your customer lists.

You have 2 options to receive uPM address information:

  1. Register to receive a weekly electronic report via email by calling 1-800-267-7651. The uPM processing fee applies to each undeliverable publication. This option provides you with the quickest access to information and allows you to easily reconcile charges on your statements.
  2. OR
  3. Receive the entire publication back with a packing slip confirming that it is undeliverable. No registration is required; we automatically send it to the Canadian return address printed on your publication. In addition to the uPM processing fee, you will also be charged for the postage of the publication.
(1) Special Handling category pricing applies to all types of groupings determined by the presortation software [Delivery Mode Direct (DMD), Delivery Facility (DF), Distribution Centre Facility (DFC), Forward Consolidation Point (FCP) and Residue].
(2) The price "per loose sample" does not apply to sample(s) that are bound or affixed to the pages within the publication, however the weight of these sample(s) must be included in the overall weight of the publication. The weight of loose samples should not be included with the weight of the publication.
(3) Applies to Publications Mail items (including Bundles of Unaddressed Copies) that are returned by mail, in addition to the uPM processing fee.
