Yes, mails and parcels will be held up at Canada Post. During the last strike notice, they did say that they will store and forward once regular services resume.
If you order something from China, it will take significantly longer for you to receive if there is a strike.

what is another couple months when it already takes 3-4 months to receive anything from china these days
btw, amazon uses every courier available (even their own) so a strike would not affect them

Looks like they've reached a tentative deal

I've had stuff showing up in under 3 weeks lately. I'm not sure how, but it's a nice surprise.

I've had things delivered within 3 weeks, after about 2 months, or missing completely...

Sometimes, the vendor will outright lie about sending out a replacement to buy time to lapse the leave feedback time frame on eBay. After that time frame, you can only hope they will refund your money.
