Statement from Minister of Public Services and Procurement Carla Qualtrough on new Chair of Canada Post Corporation


For immediate release

Gatineau, Quebec, December 14, 2017 – Canada Post is a valued national institution that has helped connect Canadians for over 250 years, and helped small, medium and large businesses thrive at home and abroad.

As Minister responsible for the Canada Post Corporation, it is my pleasure to announce today the appointment of Jessica L. McDonald for a five-year term as Chair of the Board of Directors. I look forward to working with the new leadership of Canada Post to implement our government’s soon-to-be announced vision for this important Canadian institution.

Ms. McDonald will play a critical role in overseeing the future direction of Canada Post to ensure it provides high-quality services to Canadians. Her appointment is part of a broader renewal of the Board of Directors, incorporating greater diversity and broader perspectives, including labour.

Ms. McDonald brings to the position more than 25 years of experience in senior public sector management. Her experience includes serving as Deputy Minister to the Premier of British Columbia and President and Chief Executive Officer of British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority.

The Government of Canada’s appointment process is based on openness and transparency to ensure highly qualified candidates are appointed who reflect Canada’s diversity, including gender balance.
