How often is updated address data made available?

Canada Post supplies new address reference data once each month.  Nova takes each new release and rebuilds our nCode address reference database with the most up-to-date data available.  This database is then made available to you for download through our website.

You are free to update your nCode implementation with the latest reference data at any time.  We recommend that you update monthly, although some customers choose to update less frequently.

Note: Canada requires that users of PoCAD (point of call) reference data must always use the most recent reference database release for producing the Statement of Accuracy report.  If you are using nCode Batch to produce the SOA report you should ensure that you have the current NCODEPOC.DAT file.
