Canada Post sent shockwaves to urban residents of Canada and the international postal mail community at large with the news of its sweeping changes that will phase out door-to-door delivery and at the same time increase the cost of a single stamp from $0.63 to $1.00.*

Like its ailing US neighbor the US Postal Service, the money-losing federal Crown Corporation announced drastic measures on December 11, 2013 designed to get back to profitability and ensure its survival. Many view these changes as the end of an era. The good news is a new era has already begun.

“Trustifi Postmarked Email was designed to replace first class mail in areas where standard email falls short,” said Peter Benisti, President & CEO of Trustifi Corporation. “The inconvenience of receiving and paying bills and statements just got worse! Canada Post dropping home delivery creates a sense of urgency for corporate mailers to offer a secure and compliant paperless solution to their consumers. Trustifi delivers that secure and compliant solution.”

The Trustifi Postmarked Email and Digital Mailbox services were recently evaluated under a legal review to be compliant with electronic delivery regulations for consumer communications under current OCC, FFIEC, SEC, FINRA and HIPAA guidance. “We looked for top outside counsel to provide a compliance review, and are pleased that independent counsel confirmed that Trustifi facilitates compliance in the digital world,” noted Philip Kantor, EVP & Legal Counsel of Trustifi.

The Trustifi platform provides the Push-Postmarked Email and eDocument delivery service combined with a comprehensive Digital Mailbox. The iConsent™ and Push-Postmarked Email service delivers encrypted eDocuments directly into a consumer’s email inbox and in parallel all eDocuments are simultaneously archived for 7-years on the consumer Digital Mailbox for easy access from any mobile device.

“It was never a question of if, but when, the paradigm shift towards a paperless environment would take place,” said Victor M.G. Chaltiel, Chairman of Trustifi. “With the post office’s plan to reduce service and raise costs by as much as 50%, Trustifi’s secure and compliant eDocument delivery solution is a very compelling option.”
