2021 GST/HST Incremental Federal Rebate for Municipalities Report

The Goods and Services (GST) and Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) Incremental Federal Rebate for Municipalities Report - January 1 to December 31, 2021.

Pursuant to subsection 259(13) of the Excise Tax Act, the Minister of National Revenue may release any information necessary to identify a municipality. The first three characters of the postal code represent a geographic area, and this information is required to identify a municipality. The last three characters of a postal code identify part or all of a street, or a group of rural postal offices, and are not required to identify a municipality.

Forward Sortation Area:

Beginning in 2018, the heading of "Postal Code" was replaced by "Forward Sortation Area (FSA)". Canada Post defines a forward sortation area as the first three characters of a postal code representing a set of well-defined specific areas within a major geographic region, province or territory. The first character identifies the province or territory; the second character identifies whether the area is urban or rural; and the third character, in combination with the first two characters, identifies a more precise geographic district—a specific rural region, an entire medium-sized city or a section of a major metropolitan area.
