How Ottawa Can Deliver a Reformed Canada Post

Benjamin Dachis ()

No 162, e-briefs from C.D. Howe Institute

Abstract: The federal government should progressively allow new entrants to bid for some of the mail services currently provided by Canada Post, says a report released today by the C.D. Howe Institute. In “How Ottawa Can Deliver a Reformed Canada Post,” author Benjamin Dachis, Senior Policy Analyst at the Institute, notes that Canada Post, a Crown corporation, is facing a future of large financial losses due to declining mail delivery volumes, costly universal service commitments, and mounting pension obligations. Putting more of their services to tender would be a strategy to mitigate such losses.
