1. Organize the Addresses or Coordinates You Want to Find the Division IDs, Economic Regions, and other Statistics Canada geographies for

How to Format Addresses You Want to Convert to Statistics Canada geographies in a Spreadsheet

First, you will need to organize the addresses (or coordinates) into a spreadsheet. Your spreadsheet must include headers, which can be in French (you'll just need to check that they're properly mapped to English in Step 1). The spreadsheet should be consistently laid out in one of the following formats. Make sure you designate the country as "Canada" (exactly, not abbreviated).

Multiple-column format:

Street City Province Country
110 Rue Notre-Dame O Montreal QC Canada

Single-column format:

Address
110 Rue Notre-Dame O, Montreal, QC, Canada

How to Format Coordinates You Want to Find Statistics Canada geographies in a Spreadsheet

You can also use Geocodio to convert coordinates to Statistics Canada geographies and approximate addresses. You can use either of the following formats, as long as the entire spreadsheet is formatted the same way:

Multiple-column format:

Latitude Longitude
45.504367 -73.556031

Single column format:

Coordinates
45.504367, -73.556031

Your headers can be in French. You will just want to ensure that they are properly mapped over to English in Step 1.
