Has Canada Post Changed Your Address?
Recently, some residents within the MD of Foothills received notification from Canada Post that their mailing address was changing. October 17, 2016 Canada Post brought these changes into effect. Their intent of this change is to match the physical (civic) address to the mailing address for rural residents.
If you’ve received this notification from Canada Post, it is your responsibility to notify the Land Titles Office with your address change, legal name changes and spelling corrections to your Certificate of Title.
For information on how to update your address change with the Land Titles Office, contact:

If your new address from Canada Post has a Foothills or Heritage Pointe postal code, please check and ensure your new address matches your civic (911) address. If they do not, please contact the MD of Foothills at 403.603.6241.
