Canada Post created a special postmark as a symbol of appreciation to health care professionals working to keep Canadians safe during the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. 

The cancel pictured here says "Thanks, healthcare workers," in English and French, and has been used at all Canada Post mail-processing plants since May 1. The sentiment is stamped mechanically on all letter mail with the post’s high-speed processing machines.

Additionally, postal trucks have caravanned in front of hospitals across Canada, honking and sharing messages of gratitude. Click here for video footage of the parades.
