Address Type Indicators for Canada Addresses

Address Type Indicators for Canada Addresses

Informatica Address Verification returns the following address types for Canada addresses:
  • B. The address identifies a building.
  • F. The address identifies an organization. In Canada addresses, the type F addresses are a subset of the type L addresses. Therefore, the address type F also indicates a large volume receiver.
  • G. The address is a general delivery address. In a general delivery address, the postal code and the recipient data identify the address. Address Verification uses the delivery record in the reference data to identify the address type.
  • L. The address post code identifies the organization as a large volume receiver. The address might or might not contain an organization name.
  • P. The address identifies a Post Office Box or a delivery service.
  • R. The address identifies a rural route. Address Verification uses the delivery record in the reference data to identify the address type.
  • S. The address identifies a street. S is the default address type. If Address Verification cannot determine the address type from the address data, it returns the default value.
  • U. Unidentified. The address is not valid, and Address Verification does not assign an address type.
If an address meets the criteria for more than one address type, Address Verification assigns the first applicable address type from the following list:
F, L, P, B, R, S, G.
