The Postal Code Conversion File (PCCF) links the six-character postal codes to the standard 2006 Census geographic areas (such as dissemination areas, census tracts, and census subdivisions). By linking postal codes to the Statistics Canada geographic areas, users can obtain statistical data for the areas serviced by the postal codes. The PCCF also associates each postal code with a longitude and latitude coordinate to support mapping applications.
The Postal Codes by Federal Ridings File (PCFRF) update provides a link between the six-character postal codes and Canada's federal electoral districts (2003 Representation Order). A federal electoral district (FED) is any place or territorial area entitled to return a Member of Parliament (MP) to serve in the House of Commons and is commonly referred to as a federal riding.
