The Canadian Home Builders Association has confirmed that it has reached an agreement with Canada Post over the implementation of the proposed community mailbox fee. The CHBA says that the postal service will defer the fees indefinitely and claims it as a victory for its members and “especially for new home buyers, from coast to coast.” It says the agreement saves homebuyers $120 million annually. "We are very pleased with this outcome-this is an important victory for CHBA and Canadian home buyers," said Kevin Lee, CEO, CHBA "Very importantly, we also send kudos throughout CHBA at the local, provincial and national levels of our Association for the collective effort."
