Mr. Speaker, our government is committed to creating a more inclusive, accessible and barrier-free Canada. That is why enhancing Canada Post’s accessible delivery program is a key part of our government’s renewed vision for the postal service.
I am pleased to rise to inform the House that this week marks the first meetings of the Canada Post Accessibility Advisory Panel. This national advisory panel of experts and advocates for persons with disabilities and seniors will advise Canada Post on an enhanced accessible delivery program to make it easier for Canadians to access their mail and parcels.
The Accessibility Advisory Panel will serve as a valuable forum for input and dialogue on the issue of accessibility. I thank these distinguished Canadians for agreeing to serve on the panel and for helping Canada Post continue to improve delivery for all Canadians.
