Canada Post denies report that mail delivery could be cut

OTTAWA – Canada Post is denying a media report that it’s considering cutting its delivery schedule from the current five days a week.

The Crown corporation says it continues to look at ways to save money as the mail delivery business declines.

It’s been talking with union officials about closing some postal outlets and cutting the number of sorting stations.

But a spokeswoman says reducing the number of days the mail is delivered is not on the table.

CTV News reported Wednesday that Canada Post was considering cutting deliveries to four, or even three days a week.

The report said the Crown agency is grappling with a $327 million operating shortfall.

But Canada Post says it’s not going to make any major changes to its operations at this time.
