In trying to access the CSV from: https://map-carte.tbs-sct.gc.ca/dfrp-rbif/oddo/dfrp-rbif.zip I get the following error in firefox: The owner of map-carte.tbs-sct.gc.ca has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website. Perhaps someone can look into this? Likely the SSL certificate is configured incorrectly, invalid or expired.

Hi Dave, I am able to access the link using Internet Explorer. Some times access is denied on firefox due to security issues. I will forward your comment to the data owner and have them take a look as well. Thank you, Momin, the Open Government team.

Veuillez corriger le mot ''donées'' qui apparaît à 2 reprises sous la rubrique Ressource. Il faut lire ''le dictionnaire des données''. Quel manque de respect à l'égard des francophones qui payent des impôts et contribuent à la richesse de ce pays au même titre que les anglophones! Tout à fait innaceptable.

Bonjour Julienne, Merci beaucoup de nous avoir informés. J'ai envoyé un message au fournisseur de données. -Tasha, pour l'équipe du gouvernement ouvert

A previous comment refers a to-be-developed GIS export feature. Is this feature still planned? If not, is there an alternative to access the geo data, such as request from the data owner?

Thanks for your comment. I have forwarded this to the data owner for clarification. We will get back to you as soon as possible. Tasha, for the Open Government Team

Hi Lerdman, We can provide a link to download publicly available geospatial data for the DFRP in a TAB file format, but we have a couple questions about exactly what you're looking for. Mind emailing us at open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca and we can arrange? As a side note, we're also working on making it more easily available through this site. Thank you, Kent on behalf of the open government team

To follow-up: the file has been changed to , not the recommended . I discovered the change while running my code (which failed). I will now investigate and correct. Thanks for the correction.

I've been using c# to read the DFRP Open Data XML file. Internally, in text, the file identifies as utf-16 encoding: But, the file is actually missing a BOM (U+FEFF) for utf-16. In fact, the file is encoded/saved as a UTF-8 file. Reading the xml file in its current form requires extra juggling in code because by specification the reading fails because of the automatic detection of UTF-8 and the header indication of utf-16. Can this be corrected? If the file is intended to be UTF-16, add the BOM. If it is intended to be UTF-8, remove the 'encoding="utf-16"' indication and just have Looking forward to a response (I can provide a contact email/number, as necessary).

Thanks for your comment, I have highlighted this issue with the data owner. We will get back to you as soon as possible. Karin, for the Open Government Team

The data dictionary describes a Parcel Element, which references some attributes and a link to the map image highlighting the property. Is there a source or location for the real property boundaries in the Parcel Element in some sort of geographic reference? A string of OpenGIS Well-Known Text describing the property polygon or a more organized XML structure would be useful. Thank you

Hello Todd, We received this response from the data owner. The actual open datasets of the Directory of Federal Real property was built to offer a maximum and a wide reuse of it in different domain. An export to GIS search about the properties will be available through the Directory of Federal Real Property application this fall once the application platforms have been updated. Thanks.
