Locked PCCF Files


I've found the PCCF files ‘locked’. Did I miss the info about this? I had already downloaded one that is requested, but am wondering about others.


We are currently in discussions with Canada Post to gain access to Postal Code Conversion File (PCCF) for DLI member institutions. As identified in the DLI Licence, the expectation is that DLI Contacts will make their patrons aware of the licence agreement before distributing the data.

We would like to provide more information to Canada Post as to how the DLI licence is being enforced at DLI member institutions. If you could provide to us a detailed description as to how your institution is enforcing the DLI Licence, that would be greatly appreciated and help us in the process of ensuring continued access to the PCCF data.
