<3>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 North Star, 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 North Star). 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 North Star or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the Canada Post / Postes Canada.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for North Star. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from North Star
