5. DELEGATIONS

5.1. Angela Jones, Campaign Coordinator and Kristen MacEachern, National Co-Ordinator, Save Canada Post, Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), Supporting the Endorsement of the Resolution from the City of Mississauga Regarding Canada Post Door to Door Mail Service

Received 2014-98

See also Resolutions 2015-99 to 2015-105 inclusive

Angela Jones, Campaign Coordinator, Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), stated that the CUPW strongly opposes the decision of Canada Post to convert home mail delivery to community mailbox delivery. She stated that Canada Post is not experiencing the financial difficulties that would justify such a service reduction and the decision is opposed by the majority of the public. She noted concerns with community mailboxes including problems with noise, litter and reduced home values, as well as their vulnerability to theft. She highlighted community mailboxes' lack of accessibility which cause hardship for a significant portion of the population, including seniors and persons with disabilities.

Angela Jones noted that there are positive alternatives that could be pursued by Canada Post and that major changes to the public postal system should not occur without a public review. She requested that Regional Council pass a resolution in support of the continuation of door to door mail delivery service.

Councillor Saito stated that the proposed changes to Canada Post delivery service would have a financial impact to municipalities as a result of the increased litter in the area of community mailboxes and snow removal costs. Additionally, there is the likelihood that an increased number of people would experience injuries resulting from slips and falls during winter months which can result in additional demand for municipal and provincial health and support services. She noted that the City of Mississauga passed a resolution in support of door to door mail delivery service, listed as Item 9.4 on the agenda, and she requested the endorsement of the resolution by Regional Council.

Councillor Gibson advised that the City of Brampton also passed a resolution in support of door to door mail delivery service, for the endorsement of Regional Council.

Councillor Thompson outlined concerns experienced in the rural communities with community mailboxes including the safety of residents and postal workers in accessing them and advised that the Town of Caledon is developing a by-law that would require Canada Post to work with the municipality to address safety and accessibility issues.

Councillor Thompson suggested that in addition to endorsing the resolutions from the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga, the Region of Peel pass a separate motion in support of the positions of the three area municipalities with respect to door to door mail delivery service.


Items 9.1, 9.2, 9.4 and 9.5 were dealt with.

Moved by Councillor Saito,

That City of Mississauga Resolution 0025-2015 regarding Canada Post Door to Door Delivery Service, set out as follows, be endorsed:

"Whereas Canada Post has announced the discontinuation of door to door mail delivery services in the City of Mississauga in favour of transitioning to community mailboxes and has started this transition in other municipalities;

And whereas, Canada Post has not provided the City of Mississauga with a specific date for the transition to community mailboxes;

And whereas, Canada Post has not provided the City of Mississauga with proposed locations of new community mailboxes;

And whereas, all existing community mailboxes in the City of Mississauga were planned and integrated into communities while new proposed community mailboxes were not planned for and will be difficult to situate in many neighbourhoods;

And whereas, the transition to community mailboxes will be especially hard on seniors and people living with mobility and health challenges and could undermine their ability to live independently;

And whereas, the transition to community mailbox delivery will have a negative effect on existing communities requiring increased maintenance for litter pick-up, snow and ice control, graffiti cleaning, vandalism repair and potentially cause parking and traffic issues resulting in higher costs for the municipality;

Therefore be it resolved, that prior to Canada Post making efforts to replace the door to door mail delivery service with community mailboxes within our boundaries, the City of Mississauga requires:

  1. Canada Post to conduct public engagement sessions with impacted communities for all concerned residents; and,

  2. The public engagement sessions are to be hosted by the local Member of Parliament (M.P.) and Canada Post representatives to discuss the transition and what kind of postal services City of Mississauga residents need; and,

  3. That the City of Mississauga will not endorse Canada Post's actions prior to the consultation process being successfully completed; and

  4. That in the event that Canada Post proceeds with removing the door to door mail delivery in the City of Mississauga in spite of the opposition of City Council, the City of Mississauga will have complete approval over where any future community mailboxes will be located and all costs for maintenance in and around the mailboxes will be borne by Canada Post; and,

  5. That the City of Mississauga send a letter to Deepak Chopra, Chief Executive Officer, Canada Post, to inform Canada Post that the City of Mississauga supports the existing delivery system; and,

  6. That the City of Mississauga send a copy of this motion to the Honourable Lisa Raitt, Minister of Transport, Peel Regional Council, and all other municipalities in the Region of Peel and the GTA for endorsement and to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, the Federation of Ontario Municipalities, all Peel Region M.P.s and M.P.P.s".
