By MELISSA GALVINABE and MICHELLE M. HAYESEN The Canada Post is opening its first postal service in Canada, a move aimed at providing better services to its 1.6 million customers, which it hopes will help reduce demand for the country’s more traditional mail.
The new service will begin in Calgary and Vancouver in 2018 and will be available in 10 other Canadian cities.
It is part of the government’s plan to open up new postal services in order to address Canada’s soaring cost of mail, which has been among the highest in the world.
Canada Post is the world’s largest postal service with a fleet of more than 10,000 trucks, and its delivery service has a delivery area of 1.2 million square kilometres.
It was founded in 1888 and was the countrys largest postal carrier until it was privatized in 2001.
Canada Post has struggled to compete with other mail delivery services, including the United States Postal Service and United Parcel Service.
Canada’s postal system has been criticized for failing to provide adequate service to customers, particularly rural areas and communities in remote parts of the country.
The Canada Post service is designed to be efficient, convenient and affordable, and will offer a range of services including daily mail, courier service, mail sorting and tracking services, as well as delivery by courier, mail-in-package delivery and parcel service.
It will also offer online delivery and courier service.
It will replace the Canada Post Express service, which Canada Post launched in October 2018, and the CanadaPost Courier Service, which was discontinued in 2019.
The service is now operated by the Government of Canada and operates in rural and remote areas.
