Canada Post unveiled its Indigenous and northern reconciliation plan Monday, in which it committed to meet with every community in the North to discuss their needs.
The plan unveiled is to improve service to Indigenous communities, specifically in the North.
Canada Post’s Director of Indigenous and Northern Affairs, Dale Leclair, 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.
Leclair would like some communities to receive 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.
Leclair says they will be looking at ways to make the routing of northern mail more efficient, and that it might lower prices, eventually.
