CanadaPlus - Latitude and Longitude

postal code latitude longitude database There are many commonly known Canadian cities and towns that are simply not listed in Canadian Postal databases. Canada Post uses a subset of city names to fit their purpose, but many are left out even though you may find them on a map or as a part of normal communication. Our CanadaPlus database includes all cities and towns plus their latitude and longitudes coordinates. This database has 1.2 million records (over 375,000 more than ordinary Canadian Postal CodeOM databases).

This is an Enterprise Class database that is updated monthly. It is extremely clean and well suited for commercial purposes. Each record is geocoded and standardized to ensure consistent casing, correct spellings, and uniformity.
