Footnotes ...

<1>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Hantsport - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<2>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 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 Hantsport). 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 Hantsport or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the Canada Post / Postes Canada.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Hantsport. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Hantsport
