Yes, definitely bring your purchase agreement. I did my request online, and the message I got only said the keys were ready for pick up. I thought I only need to bring photo ID. Luckily I had a scanned PDF of my agreement on my iPhone.

jckth, yes, doing a change of address costs $45 + HST for 6 months service (added info to OP ). But keys for your community mailbox are provided at no cost, and is a separate request from change of address (redirecting mail).

Couple more places to round things out (These are actually listed at the back of the Canada Post Change of Address booklet)

- Church/Religious organizations

- Gyms/Clubs

- Vets

Do you have to get the mailbox keys from Canada Post initially or does the builder supply you with them at closing?

You have to request them via Canada Post - builder cannot on your behalf.
