So keep in mind that any given Postal Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Alberta Beach). 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 Alberta Beach or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the Canada Post / Postes Canada.
