Canada Post segment reported a profit before tax of $194 million in 2014 compared to a loss before tax of $125 million in 2013.
According to the announcements, these results were mainly due to strong growth in the parcels business, lower employee benefit costs and new pricing measures for transaction mail.

Canada Post said its five-point action plan resulted in progress in realigning the postal service with the increasing need for parcel mail and declining use of paper mail.
