Geocodio can help you turn addresses (or coordinates) into ridings (also known as Canadian electoral districts). You can look up both federal ridings and provincial/territorial ridings.
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).
|110 Rue Notre-Dame O||Montreal||QC||Canada|
|110 Rue Notre-Dame O, Montreal, QC, Canada|
You can also use Geocodio to convert coordinates to ridings and approximate addresses. You can use either of the following formats, as long as the entire spreadsheet is formatted the same way:
Single column format:
Your headers can be in French. You will just want to ensure that they are properly mapped over to English in Step 1.
Alternatively, if you'd rather programatically convert addresses or coordinates to ridings, you can use the
&fields=riding or append with our API. See our API documentation here.
Once your spreadsheet has been formatted, you can upload it through our Upload tool. On Step 3 of the Upload process, you'll want to select "Canadian Federal Ridings" or "Canadian Provincial/Territorial Ridings," as shown below:
After you press Submit, your spreadsheet will start processing. No need to stay on the page -- we'll send you an email after it's done processing.
