Get Involved

Our post office is under review - Have your say!

The federal government appointed an independent task force earlier this year to identify options for the future of Canada Post. It said that everything but postal privatization would be on the table.

This fall, a parliamentary committee will be consulting with Canadians on postal service and the options identified by the task force (Note: task force report due in September). It will make recommendations to the government by year’s end.

 

 

Let the committee know what your key issues are:

  • 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?

 


Have your say on the future of Canada Post by:

  1. Filling out an online survey from September 26 to October 21, 2016 at: https://survey-sondage-hoc.parl.gc.ca/n/OGGOEConsultation.aspx?c=en-CA&studyId=8913079.... Paper surveys are available upon request.

  2. Attending one of the public consultations being held across the country. For more information, go to: http://www.parl.gc.ca/HousePublications/Publication.aspx?Language=e&Mode=1&Parl=0&Ses=0&DocId=8391013

    Information on western and northern locations to come.

Send your MP a message – Support Postal Banking

Canada needs a postal bank. Thousands of rural towns and villages in our country do not have a bank, but many of them have a post office that could provide financial services. As well, nearly two million Canadians desperately need an alternative to payday lenders. A postal bank could be that alternative. Send your MP a message in support of postal banking.
