This database ties Canada Postal Codes to corresponding Canada Metro Areas (Canadian Urban areas) and Census Agglomerations (Canadian Suburban areas). Also, it includes extra census statistics to further refine aggregation of the Postal Code data. This data is similar to that found in Statistics Canada's Postal Code Conversion File (PCCF), but is updated regularly, not every 5 years.
Pertaining to Canada Urban areas, this database is helpful for making Rural, Urban, and Suburban delineations by applying the following general classifications: Urban = Census Metropolitan Area (CMA), Suburban = Census Agglomerations (CA), and records that are not CMA/CA classified are deemed as Rural.
Note: Census Metropolitan Areas and Census Agglomerations data is also referred to as Canadian Urban Areas, Metropolitan Areas, or even CMA Census. For brevity, we often use the term Metro Areas to encompass the entire set (although the term is not quiet adequate). This product is ideal for use in developing Canadian sales territory assignments.
