About Canada’s 6-Digit Postal Codes

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.

Canada’s 6-Digit Postal Code Structure

Canada’s postal codes have a 6-digit structure, and consist of two 3-digit alphanumeric sections. The first section is known as the FSA (forward sortation area) and the second represents an LDU (local delivery unit). These digits represent the following:

  • Axx xxx: The first letter targets a specific postal district. Quebec and Ontario are targeted by multiple letters as they contain multiple postal districts—all other provinces and territories are targeted by a single letter (for example, V targets all of British Columbia.)
  • x1x xxx: The second digit communicates whether the targeted area is rural (0) or urban (1-9).
  • xxA xxx: The third digit targets an exact geographical region, such as a town or city.
  • xxx A1A: The second half of a Canadian postal code denotes a local delivery unit (LDU) which can contain either a single address or a range of addresses.

Current Postal Code Range in Canada

The current FSA postal code range in Canada is between A0 – Y1. The lowest postal codes (beginning with an A0A FSA) are located in Newfoundland and Labrador. The highest postal code area (postal codes beginning with Y1A) is situated in Yukon.
