MoneyGram International said that Canada Post has added more than 3,000 locations to the already 3,000 available agent locations currently offering money transfer services nationwide.

Through a new partnership with Canada Post, money transfer services will be offered in post offices as well as postal outlets.

The expansion is the final phase of a multi-year agreement signed in 2008, in which Canada Post, a MoneyGram agent since 2002, agreed to increase the number the locations in which MoneyGram services are offered to customers.

Dan O’Malley, executive vice president of the Americas for MoneyGram, said: “MoneyGram is very pleased that with this completed roll-out, our money transfer service is available at nearly all Canada Post locations nationwide. MoneyGram will be in over 6,000 Canada Post locations and within reach of virtually all Canadian residents.”

Louis O’Brien, chief customer officer for Canada Post, said: “Canada Post has the largest retail network in the country and is pleased to offer increased services to Canadians.”
