...show him you Driver's License or other piece of ID. Seriously, who asks these questions??

FYI, Canada Post stopped doing on-the-spot DNA identity tests back in 2005

If only it were that easy. My parcels go to Shoppers and they require the address on the ID to match the address on the parcel.


I had recently moved and my ID address did not match the address of delivery and they would not let me pick it up until I could prove I lived at the address on the parcel, ID alone was not sufficient.

My wife had already changed her ID so she picked it up. Even though it was in my name but the address matched the one on her ID.

Maybe a business card with company name and address matching package label? You might be able to get away with just a current utility bill with a matching address and the actual pickup slip along with your ID.

Seriously, who doesn't understand the question being asked is not that simple, especially when the OP mentions workplace delivery and WORK ID??

Moral of the story, collect your personal items at home or have the courier keep it at one of their pickup centres etc.

Work stuff would come to their mailroom generally.

Only Canada Post usually as for ID at shoppers Drug mart post office etc.

I guess they need to be extra careful.

Hardly do UPS,Fedex, or CP deliverers ask for ID if they are delivering to place of abode address on the package.

Show the shipping confirmation email on your phone. I don't have any kind of government ID with my address on it, and I have never had a problem picking up a package. As long as the last names match, you should be fine.

They are not supposed to ask proof of address if you have the delivery notice and the first and last names match:
