Canadian Postal Code Trivia


Canadian Postal Code Trivia

This morning I was corresponding with an American friend because in a note from USPS my postal code appeared with a 2 where a Z (zed) should have appeared.

So I went to the Canadian Postal Corporations site for some information. There I got a number of maps showing some of the breakdown in postal codes.

Wiki provided a better explaination. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_postal_code

Still better was one of the reference pages, an American site!

My thanks to Canada Post and 'Kermit' for making the morning enjoyable.
Click on the images for detailed viewing. For authoritative Postal Codes always consult the Canada Postal Corporation website - these are examples only.

All together too much information for my first coffee and 5:30am.
