Rural, northern and Indigenous communities in Canada are often under-served when it comes to financial and community services. Access to services may require a lengthy drive and sometimes online access isn’t a reliable way to get the things members of the community need. Our newest post office concept brings new services to help fill potential gaps in these communities.

Canada Post is opening a new post office in Membertou, Nova Scotia that will showcase and test some new features. The Membertou First Nation is a Mi’kmaq First Nation band government in the tribal district of Unama’ki, also known as Cape Breton Island. Customers will be able to do much more than pick up their mail and packages. They’ll have access to new money services, business services, meeting rooms, electric vehicle (EV) charging, a community directory and 24-hour secure drop off and pick up of packages.
