About Postal Codes
Every administrative division in Canada maintains its own postal code for mail delivery purposes. These codes are categorized into 2 sections and are written in an ANA NAN format. The first segment of the code is known as the 'forward sortation area' (FSA) and is used to identify the geographic location of the address. The Forward Sortation Area of Hamilton ranges from L8E to L8W, L9A to L9C, L9G to L9H, L9K.
The first character of FSA is the 'postal district', which splits the country into major geographic regions. The second character separates rural and urban regions. The number '0' denotes a rural region whereas the numbers from 1 to 9 represent the urban areas. Lastly, the third character is used to more precisely describe the geographic area of the address.
The second segment is called the 'location delivery unit' (LDU), it represents either a specific address or group of addresses. It can cover an entire city block, all of a high-rise, a small rural community or even a single house.
