We’re committed to accessibility
Canada Post has an important role to play in fostering an accessible and inclusive Canada. We are dedicated to demonstrating leadership in accessibility by promoting awareness, removing barriers and recognizing the valuable contributions of people with disabilities.
We have several initiatives in place to improve accessibility for our customers and employees, including our Accessibility Plan, accessibility strategy, accessibility advisory panel, delivery accommodation program and the redesign of our online services.
We are also partnering with local, national and global organizations to learn from and recognize those who are leading by example in advocating for accessibility and removing barriers.
Our strategy, plan and reports
Our accessibility strategy ensures that our facilities, business partnerships, workforce, products and services are accessible to all Canadians. Learn about the four key ways we plan to strengthen accessibility within Canada Post.
