Canada’s oldest purpose-built post office is in Toronto’s famed St. Lawrence neighbourhood. The First Post Office in Toronto is both a museum and a full-service mail facility.
Today, a thriving and diverse community is served by Toronto’s First Post Office. It serves as a museum that commemorates the history of the early colonial mail service, the first Postmaster of Toronto, and the insurrection that greatly impacted his life. In the same way, as people did in the 1830s, visitors to Toronto’s First Post Office can compose letters using a quill pen and wax-seal them.
