Footnotes ...

<1>Area code (587) is an overlay for area code (780). For more about area code overlays, please see our Glossary for Edson.

- Return to Citation

<2>The Canadian Postal Code consists of 6 characters, where the first three characters are the 'Forward Sortation Area (FSA)', with the last three characters being the 'Local Delivery Unit (LDU)'. In the case of Edson, we provide only the FSA and not the LDU. The Canadian Postal Codes were created as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. So keep in mind that any given Postal Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Edson). The boundaries of the Postal Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other Postal Codes. When looking for a Postal Code, whether Edson or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the Canada Post / Postes Canada.

<4>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Edson were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.

<5>The longitude & latitude values may not be the geographic center of Edson, rather it may be a prominent intersection or the center of population, etc. It will vary depending on the source.
