Yes, it is possible to pick it up at the post office only if you already rent a mail box at a postal outlet. It costs an average of 70 to 80 bucks per month to rent this mail box from Canada Post. Rental is for a minimum of three months.

I'm giving you this information from a reliable source; my parents who retired from the post office recently. Their advice to you is to wait for the courier's slip in the mail to pick up the parcel from your nearest postal outlet.

It's definitely not worth it for you to rent a mail box for the minimum three month duration from Canada Post for about 70 to 80 bucks per month.

One other thing. Post office outlets at your 7 Eleven or inside other retail stores will not call you to pick up your stuff. Callback to customers is not a job duty for those clerks. They are very busy helping customers that go to the outlet.

Maybe send it to your neighbours and ask for permission beforehand. Or use this service you send to the place and pick it up at another location. Forgot what it was called and can't find it. It was under $10 for a single package.
