Neighbourhood and Community Boundaries, Neighbourhood Boundary File (NBH)

Coordinate system: 4326 - "WGS 84"

Abstract:

The Neighbourhood Boundary File (NBH) represents neighbourhood boundaries within Canadian communities. Neighbourhoods are a geographically localized area within a larger city, town or suburb. Neighbourhoods are often social communities with considerable face-to-face interaction among members. Neighbourhoods can be used to refer to the small group of houses with similar housing types and market values. Neighbourhoods can also describe an area surrounding a local institution patronized by residents, such as a church, school, or social agency. The concept of neighborhood includes both geographic (place-oriented) and social (people-oriented) components.

Presently Neighbourhood Boundaries are only available in urban areas and Community Boundaries are available in both urban and rural areas.
