Footnotes ...

<1>Area code (587) is an overlay for area code (780).

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

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Akinsdale) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Akinsdale. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 53.6273, Longitude: -113.5946     [Map].

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