Postal code structure in Canada

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 is characteristic of 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

The current 3-digit postal code range of Canada is: A0 – Y1. The lowest postal code (A0A) is located in Newfoundland and Labrador. The highest postal code area (Y1A) is situated in Yukon.
