Multiple Enhanced Postal Codes (MEP)

Coordinate system: 4326 - "WGS 84"


The MEP, or Multiple Enhanced Postal Code product is a precision point file representing over 1 million postal codes across Canada.

MEP contains postal code data including a single link indicator (identifies main postal code when multiple exist), reference dates, and points of call for various kinds of structures and buildings with multiple postal codes associated.

The MEP product contains a Multiple Enhanced Postal Code Unique Identifier which can be used to link postal codes to census geographies, using the Postal to Census Translation Table (a separate table used for linking purposes).

Note: In 2012, there was a datum change from NAD83 to WGS84.
