About the Promise

What it is

The POST Promise is a national effort to help raise and restore consumer confidence. Participating businesses voluntarily commit to following the steps needed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. There is no cost to make the POST Promise and it was specifically designed to complement what businesses are already doing.

What it is not

The POST Promise is not a “certification” or “approval” from any regulatory body. All businesses are still required to follow the laws and recommended guidelines from their local public health office and government bodies.

It is for the common good

The POST Promise brings together all businesses across industries to implement a common approach to help keep Canadians safe during the pandemic. When people see the POST Promise logo, they can have confidence that a business is doing what it can to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The more businesses and workplaces that adopt the use of the POST Promise logo, the more recognizable it will become to the general public, thus increasing consumer confidence.
