Canada Post announced Friday that community mailboxes will replace home delivery in Charlottetown and Stratford in the fall of 2015.

The change affects addresses with postal codes starting with C1A, C1B, C1C and C1E, which is more than 9700 addresses.

In an email to CBC News, Canada Post said over the next few days affected residents will get a mail-in survey about the change.

“The package will tell them how they can express their priorities and preferences about their new delivery method,” the email said.

Canada Post says no regular employees will lose their job as a result the change. Workforce reductions will be through attrition as people retire.
