Federal Election 2019 Fact Sheet
Monday February 12 2018
Canada Post should be moving with the times by providing high-speed access to Internet Broadband in urban, rural and remote parts of the country. Did you know our postal service actually has a mandate to expand service in light of advances in communications? They should be doing it. Other postal administrations are. For example, post offices in France, Italy and the United Kingdom already offer Broadband service.

Post offces everywhere are changing with the times. People are sending fewer letters through the mail, which has affected the revenues of post offces around the world. Some postal systems have raised prices or cut services and jobs, as Canada Post did when the Conservatives were in power. But post offces in many other countries have expanded their services and branched out into new avenues in order to make more money. It’s time for Canada Post to make full use of its presence in every community and add new revenue-generating services.

PRIVATISATION

What does privatizing a post office mean?

Tuesday May 2 2017
Profits for last 20 of 22 years - Canada Post has reported profits every year since 1996, with the exception of 2011 and 2013.

A factsheet on the elements of high quality child care. It's a fact. Research shows that high quality child care plays a positive and long-lasting role in the social and intellectual development of children, no matter what their social, cultural and economic background. Lack of access to high quality child care can cause high stress for working parents: worry about their children's well being while at work, and conflicts with employers and co-workers due to lateness or absences. Lack of high quality child care also keeps women from entering and participating fully in the paid labour force.

Canada Post delivers billions of letters and parcels to homes and businesses every year. Many Canadians consider it a trusted and valuable service. But did you know that home mail delivery is the most environmentally friendly way of moving letters and parcels from sender to receiver? And it’s greener when it’s done five or six days a week.
Tuesday May 31 2016
The federal government says it wants to ensure that “Canadians receive quality postal services at a reasonable price.” It’s asking Canadians for our input. So, how do you think our national postal service should change with the times?

Postal banking is the provision of financial and banking services through a post office. It is not a new or radical idea. Postal banks already exist in many parts of the world where they are used to: increase financial inclusion, promote economic development, and generate revenue to preserve public postal service and jobs. In fact, our post office used to have a national savings bank – up until 1969 – and there is no reason we shouldn’t have one today.

Support Postal Banking - Download and Sign the Petition

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. Download and sign the petition urging the Government of Canada to instruct Canada Post to add postal banking, with a mandate for financial inclusion.
