Postal Code Conversion File (PCCF)
Product main pageThe Postal Code Conversion File (PCCF) provides a link between the six-character postal code and the standard 2001 Census geographic areas (dissemination areas, municipalities, census tracts, etc.). It also provides the XY co-ordinates for a point representing the approximate location of the postal code to support mapping. A reference guide is included (Catalogue 92F0153GIE).
The PCCF is updated on a semi-annual basis. Updates released in June provide new postal codes as of March of the release year. Updates released in January provide new postal codes as of October of the previous year. Clients must purchase the PCCF at the initial cost; then subsequent updated files (Catalogue no. 92F0153UCE) may be purchased at the update or subscription rate.
