14:37 EDT Canada Post introduces new state-of-the-art parcel sorting facility

May 12, 2022

The naming of the Albert Jackson Processing Centre pays respect to an important legacy SCARBOROUGH, ON, May 12, 2022 /CNW/ - Canada Post today unveiled its new leading-edge zero-carbon parcel sorting facility that will have the capacity to process more than one million packages a day. The Albert Jackson Processing Centre will be a key hub for the company's national network and improve service for Canadians when it officially opens in early 2023. Doug Ettinger, President and CEO of Canada Post, Manon Fortin, COO, Canada Post, Jan Simpson, National President of the CUPW, Cynthia Lai, Councillor for Scarborough North, City of Toronto, Michael Coteau, Chair of Parliamentary Black Caucus and Member of Parliament for Don Valley East, Lawrence Jackson, grandson to Albert Jackson, and other members of the Jackson family, at the unveiling event of the new Albert Jackson Processing Centre in Scarborough. (Photo: Pinpoint National Photography) (CNW Group/Canada Post) While the plant will help transform the company for the future, its name pays respect to the past. Jackson, who is believed to be the first Black letter carrier in Canada, fought and overcame significant racial barriers, including the right to work in the position he was hired for. Members of the Jackson family – including two who work for Canada Post – attended the inauguration event in front of the new building. The facility is an important piece of Canada Post's transformation plan and will help the company deliver on its purpose: A Stronger Canada – Delivered. About the facility The $470 million state-of-the-art facility, located at 1395 Tapscott Road in Scarborough, will help Canada Post meet the rapidly changing needs of Canadians and businesses across the country. The additional capacity will allow the company to handle the continued growth in online shopping for years to come. The Corporation plans to increase parcel capacity by more than 50 per cent across its network over the next seven years to manage the demand beyond 2030. The building is 585,000 square feet – roughly the size of six Canadian football fields. It will be able to sort more than 60,000 packages per hour – 50 per cent more than Canada Post's Gateway facility in Mississauga, currently the company's largest parcel plant. The facility will be able to process more than one million packages a day at full capacity. It will be Canada Post's first zero-carbon building and the largest industrial project in Canada with the Zero Carbon Building Standard designation. The facility is under construction and is expected to be operational in early 2023. More information can be found in the attached backgrounder . About Albert Jackson In 1882, Jackson – who had been born into slavery and found freedom in Canada after his mother fled north on the Underground Railroad – was hired as a letter carrier in Toronto. Believed to be the first Black letter carrier in Canada, he faced significant barriers in his workplace. His colleagues refused to train him and he was instead assigned to a lower position. The Black community in Toronto rallied around Jackson, demanding he be allowed to do the job for which he had been hired. With then-Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald facing intense pressure during a close election, the government eventually intervened. Able to return to work as a letter carrier, Jackson held the job for 36 years until his death in 1918. Jackson was commemorated on a stamp in 2019. Today, the naming of the Albert Jackson Processing Centre is intended to honour, share and preserve his legacy, and serve as a reminder of the importance of equality and respect in the workplace.
