Canada Post has a little-publicised service called "FlexDelivery", very useful for foiling 'Porch Pirates' who follow the trucks and steal those packages left at your front door.
Regardless of whether you have your mail delivered to your door or a community mailbox you can register for a special free 'virtual' post box address where they will email you when a *parcel* arrives and hold it for two weeks for you to pick up.
