It is time for Canada Post to release Postal Codes as open data sets under the Open Government Licence. Other jurisdictions have come to learn that access to Postal Code data is essential in creating a more open government.
For example, the UK, Norway, Japan, the U.S., and Rwanda all release their geocoded Postal Codes.
Meanwhile, Canada ranks 40th in the World on this issue. I believe this should be a priority for the next Open Government Action Plan.
