Postal To Census Translation Table

Coordinate system: 4326 - "WGS 84"


The Postal Code to Census table is a look up table between the Multiple Enhanced Postal Code product (MEP) and the Canadian Census product.

The Postal to Census Translation Table contains explicit and unilateral relationships of the 6-digit postal code point geometry to various levels of census geography as delineated in the 1996, 2001, 2006 and 2011 census periods.

Using the Multiple Enhanced Postal Code point Unique Identifier allows for linkage of postal codes to census geography at the census tract and dissemination area levels, for current and historical census geography delineations.

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