Footnotes ...

<1>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Beaumont refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a town's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Beaumont may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.

<2>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Beaumont were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.

<4>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 Beaumont, 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 Beaumont). 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 Beaumont or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the Canada Post / Postes Canada.
