Shapefile Description

These shapefiles are derived from the Canadian Forward Sortation Areas (FSAs) Data. FSAs in Canada are similar to zip codes in the U.S. There are over 1,600 FSAs in all of Canada's provinces and territories.

The population and dwelling counts for a forward sortation area (FSA) are based on the first three characters of the postal codes captured from the first page of the Census questionnaire. The same postal code was assigned to all members of a given household to allow for the calculation of population counts.

You can learn more about FSAs at Canada's official website.

You can also download a more detailed PDF document about the Candian FSA postal codes.

A Note About How Your GIS Maps Will Look

The image on this page is an example of how these shapefiles may look when loaded into a GIS program. Your GIS maps may not look exactly like this. Each GIS program is different. Shapefiles themselves are a collection of points, lines or polygons. They have no attributes. It is up to you, the user, to define colors, line width, symbols and other attributes within the limits and capabilities of the GIS programs you are using.

You may not create copies of the shapefiles for the use of others whether for personal or commercial use. You may not resell the shapefiles.
