Canada Post Seeks to Improve Relations With Indigenous Communities

Canada Post unveiled its plan to improve service to Indigenous communities in the North on Monday, according to CBC News.

Dale Leclair, Canada Post’s director of Indigenous and Northern Affairs, says the crown corporation will meet with each community to learn about its particular needs.

Leclair says the impetus for the strategy came from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s recommendations. He says some communities may get new full-service post offices, while others could see new parcel lockers, and access to banking services.

Leclair says Canada Post is also going to be offering a new “compensation structure” for northern contractors running post offices, to allow them to “stabilize and be more consistent in their delivery.”
