With more Canadians doing their holiday shopping online, parcel volumes have begun to soar, setting up what is expected to be a record-breaking season. As Canada Post delivers two out of three parcels ordered online, it has significantly boosted its seasonal resources and revamped its operations to ensure that retailers can meet customer expectations, and that gift-givers across the country receive their orders on time.
Canada Post is confident that its plan to secure postal service for all Canadians, including those with disabilities or mobility issues, will withstand any and all legal scrutiny.
Today, Canada Post is issuing a commemorative envelope to celebrate the monumental achievement of the Québec Conference delegates.
