In the case of Coquitlam, 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.

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