<1>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Chipman - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<2>Area code (587) is an overlay for area code (780).

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