Footnotes ...

<1>Area code (343) is an overlay for area code (613).

<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)'. In the case of Athens, 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 Athens). 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 Athens or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the Canada Post / Postes Canada.

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Athens) to Point B.

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Athens. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 44.6267, Longitude: -75.9504     [Map].

<4>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Athens were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.
