Across the country, employees are driving their trucks around healthcare facilities to recognize the unseen heroes working inside. Watch as Canadians join in and healthcare workers express their gratitude.

Health and safety is our top priority, but it has taken on a new dimension with this virus. I’m grateful to so many teams for helping to keep our people and Canadians safe, but I’d like to shine a spotlight on our local joint health and safety committees across the country. They’re showing great leadership and commitment in all kinds of ways, and what a positive impact it is having.

Canadians are most likely to see our employees who deliver, drive a Canada Post vehicle or serve them in a post office – and many thank them with a wave, a thumb’s up, a sign in the window or a kind word.
The safety of our employees and the communities we serve continues to be our top priority. To do that, we have followed the guidance of the Public Health Agency of Canada as we rolled out measures and supplies throughout our operations.
