The Greater Ottawa Region covers the municipalities bordering the Ottawa River from Stewartville in the West to Hawkesbury in the East and North of Highway 43. At the centre of this region is the Ottawa Area, comprising the City of Ottawa and surrounding municipalities including Kanata, Nepean, and Orleans.
The region is divided into two sub-regions
Ottawa Area Sub-region: This area comprises primarily the City of Ottawa. It is the second largest urban centre in Ontario with a population over 1.1 million and a mix of electricity customers including government and commercial facilities, light industry, and residential customers.
Outer Ottawa Sub-region: This sub-region comprises the eastern and western parts of the Greater Ottawa Region. The eastern part is bordered by the City of Clarence-Rockland, Municipality of Casselman, and eastward to Champlain Township, while the western part is located to the West of Kanata.
The city in western Quebec is the fourth-largest city in the province after Montreal, Quebec City, and Laval. It is coextensive with a territory equivalent to a regional county municipality (TE) and census division (CD) of the same name, whose geographical code is 81.

Before the framework came into being, large cities were often divided into postal zones or postal districts, which were numbered from 1 upwards within each city. A Canadian postal code is a code of letters and digits that are incorporated in a postal address. The purpose of these postal codes is to aid sortation of mails. For instance, the name, address, destination written on letters or packages are meant to assist in efficient delivery to that location.
Ottawa’s postal codes are formulated like K0A, K0A 1K0, K0A 1W0, etc. For Gatineau, the postal codes are structured like J8L 0A2, J8L 1A1, J8L 1A2, etc.
