What data is expected?

A database of postcodes/zipcodes and the corresponding spatial locations in terms of a latitude and a longitude (or similar coordinates in an openly published coordinate system). The data has to be available for the entire country. See our methodology section for more information.

  • Zipcodes
  • Addresses
  • Coordinates (latitude, longitude)
  • Data available for entire country

How open is the data?

The full specification for the file format can be found at: https://www.canadapost.ca/cpo/mc/assets/pdf/business/postalcodetechspecs_en.pdf. Canada Post is a crown corporation and request to make this file open to the public has been made on numerous occasions.
