The Postal Code Conversion File (PCCF) is a digital file which provides a correspondence between the Canada Post Corporation (CPC) six-character postal code and Statistics Canada’s standard geographic areas for which census data and other statistics are produced. Through the link between postal codes and standard geographic areas, the PCCF permits the integration of data from various sources.

For this release of the PCCF, the vast majority of the postal codes are directly geocoded to 2016 Census geography while others are linked via various conversion processes.

Notes: 

For a one-to-one correspondence between postal codes and dissemination areas, select only those records that have a Single Link Indicator (SLI) value of 1.
