ABOUT POSTAL CODES IN CANADA

Canadian postal codes are alphanumeric and follow a specific format: A1A 1A1, where "A" represents a letter and "1" represents a digit. The format consists of six characters with a space separating the third and fourth characters. Here is a breakdown of the structure:

First Character (Forward Sortation Area - FSA): This letter represents a geographic area, with each province or territory having specific initial letters.

Second Character: This digit represents a region or city within the FSA.

Third Character: This letter provides more precise localities or neighborhoods within the region.

Space: Separates the FSA from the Local Delivery Unit (LDU).

Fourth Character (Local Delivery Unit - LDU): This digit represents a specific area, building, or group of addresses within the FSA.

Fifth Character: This letter further refines the LDU.

Sixth Character: This digit is the final refining component of the LDU, pinpointing specific addresses or groups of addresses.

Examples of Canadian Postal Codes K1A 0B1: Ottawa (example of a postal code used for federal government mail).
