Statistics Canada

Given an address or coordinates, Geocodio will return statistical boundaries from Statistics Canada.

You can download an example of the results when you add data from Statistics Canada to a list of addresses or coordinates here. You can see a tutorial for adding Statistics Canada geographies here.

Data returned for Canadian Census boundaries given an address or coordinate pair include:

  • Division
    • Division ID
    • Division Name
    • Division Type Abbreviation
    • Division Type Description
  • Consolidated Subdivision

Address and Coordinate Formats

Note that Canadian addresses must be accompanied by "Canada" given exactly, whether as a column in the spreadsheet (multi-column format) or in the address (single-column format). See examples here.

API for Address or Coordinate to StatCan Boundaries

If you'd prefer to use an API, you can see our technical documentation here.


Requests are billed as geocode + StatCan info (i.e., two lookups). For example, if you have 100 addresses that you want StatCan boundaries for, that would count as 200 lookups.

You can calculate how much this will cost you and how long it will take here. Note that prices are in USD.
