I’ve set up mail forwarding, and have changed my address at a few places. I know some that I still have to do, and I’m sure there’s some I will forget.
- All banks
- Provincial Health Plan
- All doctors/dentists/etc
- Driver’s licence
That’s what I have off the top of my head.

@AB Bride: I have to do this too. A few more:
Internet/Phone/Electricity (if transferring service and not just cancelling)
The forwarding will def. help some of these but I didn’t want lag time on precious things like Netflix! 🙂

@AB Bride: any magazine or newspaper subscriptions
Nexus card if you have one
car insurance and any other insurance provider

I have all services taken care of already. Changing all the loyalty programs is going to suck

When you set up an address forward in the united states that data goes back to a lot of people who send you mail and typically the loyalty programs and catalogs follow you. (some, unfortunately so lol)

@MsJ2theZ: AFAIK the mailing forwarding info doesn’t go to anyone but us and Canada Post.
We’re getting banking info and other stuff for the previous owners.

when i bought my house, i had my mail forward. as i would received mail with the yellow sticker for forwarding, i would make sure i had that changed.
the previous owners did not have their mail forwarded. i received holiday cards with checks, wedding invitations, etc. in the beginning, i wrote “return to sender” after 6 months, i got tired of it and threw their mail away.
