Canada Post begins to make Operational Changes to Help Alleviate Gridlock in Toronto’s Downtown Core

Jan. 5, 2015

Given size and scope of operations, changes will be phased in over coming weeks and months.

Toronto (Ontario) – Canada Post understands that the City of Toronto must address ongoing issues with traffic congestion and gridlock in the downtown core. We also understand that our own delivery vehicles contribute to traffic congestion.

In order to meet the needs of our customers our employees have to temporarily park vehicles in the downtown core. They clear out street letter boxes, deliver and collect mail and parcels from thousands of residential and commercial addresses each day.

To help reduce traffic congestion and gridlock in the downtown core, we recognize that changes to operating procedures must be made by everyone who serves the downtown core.

Canada Post is in the process of conducting a thorough review of our pick-up and delivery operations in the downtown core of Toronto and have assembled a senior team to work and implement a plan to help alleviate this issue.
