Footnotes ...

<1>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Chauvin. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Chauvin - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Area code (587) is an overlay for area code (780).
<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)'.

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