Street Network Files (SNF), 1996 Census

Coordinate system: 4269 - "NAD83"


This data series contains two Street Network Files (SNF) produced by Statistics Canada for the 1996 census. The dataset only covers urban areas.

  • Street Network and Feature Extension Files
  • Skeletal Street Network

The original data files are from the Data Liberation Initiative (DLI), a Statistics Canada program that provides data to academic institutions in Canada. The original files have been converted from the Arcinfo Interchange E00 file format (.e00) or the MapInfo TAB file format (.tab) into a shapefile format (.shp), as part of a data migration project to enhance the spatial use of the data. The original data files, and other supporting files and documentation, are available as additional downloads from Scholars GeoPortal.
