Postal codes in Canada
Postal code structure in Canada
The Canadian postal code system is developed by the Canadian national postal service (Canada Post) to divide Canada into different areas. With this system each Canadian region gets a unique code and locations can be found easily.
The 3-digit postal codes are part of the official alphanumeric 6-digit postal code system. The first three indicate the Forward Sortation Area and the last three, the Local Delivery Unit. The structure of these 6-digit postal codes is as follows:
- Vxxxxx: The first letter indicates the province. For example, the letter V represents the Vancouver province.
- V8xxxx: The second digit indicates whether we are dealing with a rural or an urban area. When this number is 0, this is a vast rural area. All other numbers feature an urban area.
- V8Axxx: The third letter, in combination with the first two digits indicates the exact geographical district and whether this is a rural area, a town or a large city area.
- The last three characters denote a local delivery unit (LDU). An LDU denotes a specific single address or range of addresses
