Social and environmental leadership

With a presence in virtually every community, Canadians expect us to extend our responsibility beyond the services we provide. Proudly taking a leading role on key national issues, we set an example for others through a dedication to equality and fairness, environmental protection, and reconciliation with Indigenous and northern communities.

Our approach

We’re committed to playing a leading role in building a stronger, more inclusive and greener Canada for our customers, communities and employees. Driven by our purpose, A Stronger Canada – Delivered, our transformation plan is anchored by three pillars: providing a service all Canadians can count on, social and environmental leadership and doing right by our people.

Canada Post’s approach to corporate sustainability and ESG guides the company’s actions to deliver on these pillars, with a focus on the priority areas that matter most to our stakeholders.
