What do you want to use it for? Enter a postal code, and see if it's in
an NIA? That won't quite work, as they don't exactly line up. For
instance, all of M1K isn't in the Eglinton East-Kennedy Park NIA*.
The first three characters of the postal code is all you can get for
free in Canada. The geographic data set is here:
- but it comes with a fairly limiting licence that means you can "not
merge or link the Information with any other databases for the purpose
of attempting to identify an individual person, business or organization"
The other way is to get someone to intersect geocoder.ca
against the NIA boundaries, but that too isn't going to be perfect, and
might be a lot of work.
*: which, it appears, I live in. Woohoo! I wonder why at least ⅙ of this
NIA is taken up by a cemetery, though?
