Resolution Title

Unaddressed Admail

Resolution Text

Whereas unaddressed admail contributes to waste when it is not wanted and may go unrecycled;

And whereas unaddressed mail from local governments is not included in the exemptions allowing other governments to use unaddressed admail;

And whereas this barrier may hinder local governments from encouraging residents to use “no junk mail” stickers to reduce their amount of recycling and waste:

Therefore be it resolved that UBCM and FCM ask Canada Post to develop a system to allow recipients to OPT IN for admail rather than needing to opt out.
