Standard Geographical Classification (SGC) reference maps
The Standard Geographical Classification (SGC) provides a systematic classification structure that categorizes all of the geographic area of Canada. The classification is organized in two volumes, each available separately. Volume I describes the classification and related standard geographic areas and place names. It explains the changes between the current version of the SGC and the previous version that impact upon the classification, such as changes in name, type or code, and indicates how the new and old codes relate to one another. Volume II contains reference maps showing boundaries, names, codes and locations of the geographic areas in the classification. For more information regarding Volumes I and II, refer to Geographic classifications.
Note to users: The HTML version of Volume I provides screen-readable definitions, tables and descriptions of the geographic areas portrayed within the Volume II, Information on Reference Maps.
