Census 1996: Geographic Files - Postal Code Conversion File

  • The files are self-expanding (.EXE) and contain data in ASCII format (.TXT)
  • Supplementary 'Names' files are available. Due to the size of the name fields, and because of their repetition, the names are provided on separate files (all four compressed into "name-nom.exe"):
    - Census Division Names File (CD96.DAT)
    - Federal Electoral District Names File - 1996 Representation Order (FED96.DAT)
    - Census Metropolitan Area/Census Agglomeration Names File (CMACA96.DAT)
    - Primary CMA/Primary CA Names File (PCMAPCA96.DAT)
