CANADA POST tracking is back, and that means there’s no better time to be a Canadian than now.
It means we’re back on track with the $3 billion Canada Post modernization plan, and it means we can finally get to work on improving Canada Post’s delivery times.
The big news is that Canada Post is finally able to accurately track lottery results on its website, and Canada Post expects to have those results up and running in about a week or so.
Canada Post also plans to offer an automated “Lotto Post” that lets users vote on their favourite lottery ticket, and then receive an email from the winner’s agent.
“We are now able to track the results of our lottery, and we are committed to delivering this information to you in a timely manner,” said Canada Post spokeswoman Kelly Mowat in a statement.
The agency plans to launch the automated Lotto Post this fall, and hopes to have it operational by the end of 2019.
“While we’ve always worked diligently to improve our lottery tracking, this announcement means that we’re on the right track,” Mowet said.
Canada Post said it is already working on a system that will allow users to enter their winning lottery ticket number and other details, such as whether they have received a bonus for winning.
It’s also looking into ways to provide “virtual lottery ticketing,” allowing users to buy a lottery ticket directly from the site.
Mowat also said Canada Postal is continuing to develop the online tracking system for other types of postal services, such in-person mail, mobile, and video delivery.
“We have a lot more work to do before we can begin offering this technology,” Mamposki said.
The post office announced the modernization plan on Wednesday, as part of a broader overhaul that includes new technology for Canada Post, an expansion of its postal workforce, and an expansion to its “digital gateway” program.
Canada Post’s modernization plans will not only help it deliver mail faster and more efficiently, but will also help it become a more competitive and efficient service provider.
Mow at least partially attributed the modernization to the federal government’s desire to modernize Canada Post.
“Canada Post has done a great job,” she said.
“It has the technology, the workforce, the support and the ability to make that happen.”
Canada Post currently uses about 100,000 computers and more than 2,500 IT workers to deliver mail and deliver parcels, and Mow said the agency plans on expanding that to another 10,000 in 2019.
The modernization program is expected to increase its workforce by 10,700 people.
