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.
