With the largest retail network in the country and many unmet community needs, there is much that the post office can do. Ours was the first post office in the world to offer public access to the internet in 1997 in St. Catharines and Niagara on the Lake. This initiative was funded and implemented through an Innovation and Change mechanism that the union first negotiated with Canada Post Corporation (CPC) in 1993. In addition to banking, broadband services and offering charging stations for electric vehicles, Canada Post’s retail network can be leveraged for other innovative products and services, including enabling digital transactions and additional points of public access for government services that are closer to where people live.
That Canada Post commit to using its retail network for on-going testing of new products and services and preserve piloting mechanisms that ensure that ideas from the union and the public are considered and tested.
That Canada Post leverage its public retail network for collaborative initiatives with various levels of government and public institutions.
That Canada Post provide high-speed (broadband) Internet access and wifi access at post offices.
That the retail network be allowed to respond to local needs and promote local economic development.
