Communications and Consultation (C&C) Group

Canada Post is exploring with stakeholders the options to address the challenges facing the pension plan and is committed to an ongoing effort to keep all Plan members informed.

The Communications & Consultation (C&C) Group was established in 2015 and is made up of 12 representatives, five elected and seven appointed, to represent their stakeholder groups. The role of the representatives is to help facilitate the exchange of information between the Corporation and the Plan members they represent.

It's important to note that the C&C Group representatives do not replace your representatives on the Pension Advisory Council (PAC), which remains in place.
