Tracking Canada Post packages, shipments and deliveries

Canada Post

Canada Post is the postal system in Canada. It was originally called The Dominion of Canada Postage Payers but has been known by its current name since October 8th, 1969.

Canada's postal history began with the transport of correspondence between Montreal and Quebec City around 1750. This means that Canada Post can trace its roots back to before Canadian Confederation (the establishment of a federal government) which took place in 1867.

Today, Canada Post provides about 2 million services annually including letters, bills, invitations, voting ballots, and event tickets; to let people know about what is happening within their communities. There are approximately 6100 post offices across this vast country.

Canada Post is a Crown corporation which means that it is owned by the government of Canada, but its profits go into general revenues. The crown owns all of the shares in this company and pays tax on them as well as any dividends they may receive from their investment. In order to reduce public debt, the federal government has been trying to sell the Crown Corporation since 1993 but many Canadians do not want this to happen because they feel that their country's postal system would be worse off without public control of the industry.
