About Canada Post

Canada Post is operated by Canada Post Group and works as one of the primary postal services within Canada. Known previously as Royal Mail Canada, the corporation changed its name in 1960 to become what it is known as today: Canada Post.

In October 1981, the Canada Post Corporation Act came into effect, abolishing the Post Office Department and creating the corporation that provides the postal service of today. Many argue that abolition has meant the independence and the financial security of the postal service.

Canada Post is one of a group of different sub-companies under the Canada Post Group, which today employs more than 60,000 employees. In 2000, Canada Post expanded its services to include, among others, Epost, offering faster international delivery options for customers.
