Canada Post has secured a trailer for its temporary Post Office in Charlie Lake.
The new Post Office will be operational until the Charlie Lake Store is repaired. The store caught on fire on May 5th, and caused water and smoke damage to the post office.
Spokesperson Theresa Williams says all the company needs, is signed approval from the land owner.

The good news is, Canada Post will be relocating the mailboxes from the Charlie Lake Store, into the new trailer.
That means customers do not need to worry about new keys and mailboxes. Williams says the boxes will be cleaned before being installed into the new trailer.
She also says the land is right across the road from the Charlie Lake Store.
The make-shift Post Office will be operational within a day or two of the land agreement signing, and Williams will provide an update when it becomes available.
In the meantime, Charlie Lake customers can still pick up their mail from the Fort St. John Post Office, located at 10139 101st avenue. Residents are asked to pick up their mail from 12pm-3pm.
