What kind of postal service will you need in the future? - Canada Post poses question to Canadians in public online forum

OTTAWA, April 24, 2013 /CNW/ - Canada Post has launched a public online forum for Canadians to join a national conversation that will help shape future postal services.

The launch of the public forum follows the April 23 release of a Conference Board of Canada report entitled "The future of postal services in Canada." The report projects Canada Post may lose almost $1 billion a year by 2020 as a result of relentless declines in Lettermail volumes.

As Canadians have changed how they use the postal system, Canada Post is seeking their views on how to transform the business in order to meet their current and future needs. The Corporation is aware of the important role it plays in connecting Canadians, in urban and rural Canada, in the North and as an enabler for small businesses.

Canadians will be able to share their thoughts in two ways. They can submit their comments on the Canada Post website (canadapost.ca) and click on The Future of Canada Post or they can write to the address below:


Canada Post has stayed relevant to generations of Canadians by understanding their changing needs and evolving to serve them. The options put forward by the Conference Board are the starting point for this important conversation with Canadians about what they value, what they expect from us going forward and what needs to change to get there.
