About

Friends of Public Services believes that publicly-owned programs and services are a cornerstone of healthy communities, and one of the best ways to raise quality of life for everyone while equitably distributing our society’s wealth. 

We got our start in July 2015 fighting the cuts to door-to-door mail delivery, just one example of the austerity agenda that has driven cuts to jobs and privatization of public services. Until it was stopped, by actions taken by thousands of Canadians, it threatened 8,000 good jobs and a cherished service that has innumerable benefits, especially for the most vulnerable Canadians. 

Since then, our work has focused on expanding services at Canada Post and stopping the privatization agenda elsewhere.

We aim to go beyond a defense of existing services, to expand the public’s imagination of how public services can redistribute wealth, improve quality of life across the board, and lay the groundwork for a sustainable economy.
