Amazon Prime order in Toronto with Two day shipping.. will it be a courier or Canada Post?

Hello,

I am making a purchase on Amazon with Prime and it is offering me two day shipping. I find with one day, I get the courier. With two day, it is usually Canada Post. My problem is that Canada Post won't leave it at my door as I know I won't be home for the delivery. A courier will. Does anyone have any experience in predicting or choosing shipping options that have a preference for a courier over Canada Post?

The package could be shipped by any carrier. The majority of mine come via Canada Post. Checking the Tracking Number on the order will tell you who its shipping by.

I recently purchased a Fire HD10 and it came with free 2-day shipping and it was delivered by Canada Post. I find the majority of same-day or one-day shipments will be delivered by courier service (either Purolator or Amazon's own delivery service), while two-day or slower shipments are by Canada Post.

I'd be surprise if it wasn't Amazon delivering it.

Why don't you just choose a local Canada Post pickup point at SDM, etc?
It's guaranteed to be Canada Post and it will be indoors in a safe location. I just picked up another Amazon shipment at SDM today and I find it's an excellent alternative.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

I made a purchase yesterday afternoon and it's arriving today via CP, shipped and delivered within Ottawa.
