Full Answer

Canadian postal codes vary from American ZIP codes in that they contain a series of six characters broken down in two groups of three characters each. The first group contains one letter followed by one number and another letter to represent identification code of the regional sorting facility. The second section has the same pattern and represents the code of the local mail-delivery unit.

In terms of total land size, Quebec is the largest province in Canada, with an area of almost 600,000 square miles. However, it is still smaller than the territory of Nunavut. It resides in the eastern section of the country and reaches to the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, which opens into the Atlantic ocean. It is also the second-largest administrative district in the country, due to its population. Though Quebec does use English as its official language, many of its residents speak French, which is also the province's official provincial language.
