† Areas based on complete census subdivisions, except Kuujjuarapik and Whapmagoosui (formerly Great Whale/Poste-de-la-Baleine), Quebec, which share the same postal code and must be combined. Even when municipal codes are assigned from place names, these two communities are not well distinguished; "Great Whale/Poste-de-la-Baleine" has been and may still be used, especially as a mailing address.
