Canada Latitude/Longitude Database, Multiple Cities

Canada Post including Alternate Township Names

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.

Our CanadaPlus Edition contains a list of Canada Postal Codes of over 1.2 million records. By comparison, a standard Canadian Postal Codes database (including our standard list of Canadian Postal CodesOM) have over 875,000 records. This version has Canada Latitude and Longitude. This postal code latitude longitude database is intended for Enterprise customers and is excellent for establishing Time Zones for Canadian customers, meeting Canada Post requirements, city verification, and linking areas to Canada latitude and longitude coordinates.

Stable Verification Methods
