Petition to the Minister of National Revenue

  • The majority of the approximately 11,000 Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers (RSMC) employed by Canada Post are required to use their own vehicles to deliver mail;
  • The cost of fuel has risen dramatically over the past few months;
  • The current maximum “reasonable allowance rates” set by the Canada Revenue Agency ($0.61 for the first 5,000 km and $0.55 for all additional km) is not sufficient to cover the cost of operating a vehicle with the current fuel prices; and
  • This is creating a situation where some Canada Post RSMC employees are forced to use their wages to cover part of the cost of using their vehicle to deliver mail for Canada Post.
We, the undersigned, Canada Post employees and other interested Canadians, call upon the Minister of National Revenue to instruct the Canada Revenue Agency to                                                                                                          temporarily increase to maximum reasonable per kilometre allowance rates by a minimum of 15% from the current rates and to have the Minister of Public Services and Procurement                                                                                                      instruct Canada Post to pay the new maximum km allowance rates to its RSMC employees. This temporary measure shall remain in place until the average price of gasoline in Canada
drops below $1.75 per litre.
