I don't even bother tracking on canaduh post website until it leaves the origin country.

this is why 17track.net and postal.ninja are very handy .. they show the tracking entries from both sides

I usually follow on the origin site until they say that it's gone .. china post, usps, etc

but you will see electronic entry as first entry on almost every package cuz that is the shipper using the software to buy and print shipping label for your package
