The federal government has appointed an independent task force to identify options for the future of our postal service. It says that everything but postal privatization is on the table.
CUPW welcomes the review and the chance for postal workers and the public to have a say in the future of the post office. It’s time to end the cuts and start getting creative about our possibilities.
The public and various organizations will be able to take part in public consultations by way of mail, email, and social media. The government anticipates completing the whole process by the end of 2016.
Moreover, we believe the government has a historic opportunity to reinvent Canada Post with new services like postal banking. It could also restore and improve the Letter Carrier Alert program and return Food Mail to northern communities.
The task force wants to know what you think. What are your key issues?
- Getting your home mail delivery back? • Keeping your public post office?
- Greening the post office? • Creating services that support seniors and people with disabilities?
- Bringing back our postal bank for more inclusive, accessible financial services for everyone?

You can have your say by submitting a brief to the task force by June 23, 2016, or at the latest, by the end of July.
