Equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI)

Canadians expect Canada Post to be a leader on equity and diversity, to act against racism and discrimination and to help build a more inclusive country. Our vision is to reflect Canada's diversity in all that we do. It’s an essential part of who we are as a company, how we operate and how we see our future. We're committed to providing safe, welcoming and accessible spaces for everyone across Canada.
