<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 Acheson, 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 Acheson). 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 Acheson or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the Canada Post / Postes Canada.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Acheson. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Acheson
