Canada Post is now formally recognizing Langford in mailing addresses, instead of Victoria.

Canada Post has updated their address database to show Langford as active in mailing addresses, effective June 19, 2023.

You may wish to notify senders of your new mailing address so that they may update their records. But that’s optional.

Making changes is optional:

“Please be assured that mail and parcels bearing your old municipal mailing address will be automatically redirected,” says the City of Langford on their You’ve Got Mail in Langford webpage.

Those receiving mail with “Victoria” as the city, will still be successfully delivered as Victoria will now be listed as a secondary city in the Canada Post database.

No change to postal code, no disruption:

There will be no change to your postal code or street address as a result of this change.

Businesses are encouraged by the City of Langford to update their websites and Google business listing to display as Langford.
