How does Canadian Address Verification work?

The AccuZIP Canadian Address Verification module uses two sets of data published by Canada Post: Postal Code Address Data (PCAD) and the Point of Call Data (PoCAD). PCAD data is a list of postal code ranges. PoCAD is substantially more granular and provides detailed information that can distinguish the true delivery points within a valid range. The primary difference between the two is that PCAD standardizes and matches the address to a range of numbers on a street or block face. PoCAD is able to confirm the Canadian Address at the delivery point, including secondary information. If AccuZIP cannot confirm the Canadian Address with PoCAD, the standardized PCAD address is returned.

To summarize, PCAD verifies an address falls within a range and PoCAD takes it a step further by confirming the address at the delivery point level. If AccuZIP cannot confirm the address through PoCAD, the standardized PCAD matched address is returned for a clean more standardized result.

The Canadian Address Verfication module is completely integrated into AccuZIP6. No additional steps! For more information or to purchase this add-on please call us at (800) 233-0555.
