How does that work?
Community mailboxes that serve a neighbourhood. You need to
trek to one to pick up your mail.
A good part of the city where I live still has door to door delivery from Canada
Post, but on the other hand the community where I grew up never did.
At-property delivery is still present in neighbourhoods whose development predates the
change in delivery policy. The change, IIRC, was sometime in the late-70s. Neighbourhoods
developed (subdivision/rezoning) after the policy change get community boxes, even if
immediately adjacent to a neighbourhood with at-property. A new house built in an old
(pre-change) neighbourhood will still get at-property.
At least that's the general rule as I've observed it. Canada Post has tried to get
rid of at-property delivery a few times and met with resistance.
