Mail does not get delivered to your house in Inuvik, as there are no postal delivery workers. Instead, you sign up for a Post Office Box and check your mail at the Canada Post office every few days.
If you get a package delivered, it is also sent to Canada Post and you take the slip that's put in your mailbox to the counter and collect your package.
This is my very own box and that's me checking for mail!
The Post Office is only open until 5:30, so it is really busy between 5 and 5:30 when everyone checks their mail after work! If you need to talk to someone, just wait around during that time, and you'll probably see them come through!
It's very exciting when a letter arrives, especially from a good friend from home!
