A consulate employee traveled to the Point Roberts, WA post office facility twice weekly to drop off and pick up. I went down once myself but also mailed things from Washington on my own at times if I was in a rush. It could be a bit slow but nothing unreasonable. - Jun 2014

The Consulate maintains a Post Office box in Pt Roberts, WA. If you don't have one, get a U.S box office in one of the border towns, where you can order stuff online without paying Canadian prices. - Oct 2008
