Suggested Dataset: Postal codes and federal ridings

Elections Canada
Elections Canada already provides a search engine where you can find your federal riding, by postal code. It would be very useful to have this database available in a format such as Excel so we can automate searches of companies, people, etc.

Aug 9, 2023 Data owner unable to publish dataset

The postal code to electoral district correspondence data is comprised of postal code data and electoral district boundary data. The postal code data cannot be published on the Open Government Portal since it is comprised of (i) data that is owned by a third party and subject to contractual obligations prohibiting the requested publication and (ii) data that is governed by the Canada Elections Act which does not permit the requested publication. As for the digital federal electoral district boundary files in vector format, they are already available for download on the Open Government Portal for the representation orders of 2003 and 2013, and for the 2015, 2019 and 2021 general elections.
