PO Box listed on the older caches of the boardsofcanada.com website is closed unfortunately, yes, you are right.
They currently don't have a fanmail PO box.
If it is something really important, there are ways. I recall someone having a personally signed copy of something (such a good memory, val) from someone that the band admired that was sent in their direction through the proper channels, but things like that are really quite rare and subject to whether they feel that it is "iffy" or not. Considering the newer breed of autist-fan that came along after TH (myself included to a certain extent, I looked into it far too much and I was smoking far too much) can sometimes reach the point of delusion I can see why they wouldn't want any direct mail.
That said, if you did have anything important to say, MDG lurks more than it would initially appear and I am sure that he relays information to the brothers once in a while.
