Postal Transformation: Renewing Canada Post’s Physical and Electronic Network to Create a Modern Post

Every day, Canada Post delivers 45 million pieces of mail to 15 million points of call to help their customers communicate, send and receive payments, advertise and ship products. Canada Post is in the midst of a $2 billion modernization program called Postal Transformation that began in 2007. The program is bringing about a substantial, much-needed infrastructure investment in the Canadian postal system to modernize or replace obsolete plants, equipment and processes, to improve efficiency, productivity and employee safety and to build a foundation for new and improved service offerings.

Cal Hart, Senior Vice-President, Postal Transformation, will provide insight into the vision and strategy behind this transformation, the technology and changes required for its success and the net benefits for Canadian consumers and businesses.
