Footnotes ...

<1>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Macklin were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.

<3>The Canadian Postal Code consists of 6 characters, where the first three characters are the 'Forward Sortation Area (FSA)', with the last three characters being the 'Local Delivery Unit (LDU)'. The Canadian Postal Codes were created as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. So keep in mind that any given Postal Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Macklin). The boundaries of the Postal Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other Postal Codes. When looking for a Postal Code, whether Macklin or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the Canada Post / Postes Canada.
