Postal Codes in Canada

Canada’s postal code data depicts boundaries across all of the country’s geographic regions. Though numbered postal zones were first used in Toronto in 1925, these modern postal codes—also known as postcodes—were gradually introduced in 1971–1974 to facilitate automatic sortation and efficient mail routing across the country.
