Help- Canada Post

So yet again I have a package due to arrive at my house today. The only problem is, I wrote the wrong first name in the order [I go by Lexi but my given name is Sasha], and it's possibly a item that has to be signed for.  
Would someone help me and tell me what I should do? Could my dad sign for it? It's a book from IndigoChapters.

If I remember correct last time I had something sent to me it is basically anyone can sigh if they have proper I'd that shows they live there. So you should be ok as long as your home when they show up or you have id that shows your address when you go pick it up at the post office

Any adult in the house can sign for it.....doesn't matter who it's addressed too. The signature is only for proof of delivery to the correct address, doesn't matter who's name is on the package.  
If you have to go to the post office to pick it up though, then whoever is signing for it has to have ID with proof that they live at the address on the package.

I have never been asked for ID when picking up. Gave them the card and got my package.

No worries

all Canada Post will want at the door is a signature.
