Postmaster job open in Cawston

Canada Post is currently looking for a new postmaster for Cawston.

Canada Post is currently looking for a new postmaster for Cawston.

Eugene Knapick, a spokesperson for Canada Post said the job has been vacant since October 7.

“The postmaster retired July 31. We were able to staff it temporarily until October 7. Right now we don’t have a postmaster so we had to temporarily close the office,” he said.

Knapick said the Cawston post office does not have any postal boxes but does act as a general delivery spot for three or four clients. The post office was used for parcel drop-off and pickup for the area.

Until a new part-time Cawston postmaster is hired, general delivery or parcel pickup customers have to go to Keremeos.

Knapick said the job has been posted on the Canada Post website but the Review could not find it online on Tuesday.

The new postmaster would have to provide a facility for the post office somewhere in Cawston.
