Delegations
Canada Post Mail Conversion from Home Delivery to Community Mailbox Delivery

Regional Council received a delegation from Angela Jones, Campaign Coordinator, Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), who advised of CUPW's opposition to the decision of Canada Post to convert home mail delivery to community mailbox delivery, noting that the decision is opposed by the majority of the public. She noted concerns with community mailboxes including problems with noise, litter, reduced home values, vulnerability to theft and their lack of accessibility which causes hardship for a significant portion of the population.

Regional Council endorsed the positions of its three area municipalities with respect to the continuation of door to door mail delivery service.
