Postal Codes by Federal Ridings File

Wednesday, 2015 September 2, 8:30 a.m. (Ottawa time), sees the official release, via the Internet, of the Postal Codes by Federal Ridings (2013 Representation Order) File (PCFRF). This file reflects postal codeOM data from the Canada Post Corporation up to and including November 2014, and the new, legal Federal Ridings (2013 Representation Order).

The Postal Codes by Federal Ridings File (PCFRF) provides a link between the six-character postal code and Canada's federal electoral districts. A federal electoral district (FED) is any place or territorial area entitled to return a Member of Parliament (MP) to serve in the House of Commons and is commonly referred to as a federal riding.

A reference guide has been produced for this product. This guide describes the content of the product, as well as providing information on data quality, record layouts and methodology. There will be only an HTML release of the guide.
