Saskatchewan Civic Address Registry (CAR) Dataset

The Civic Address Registry dataset provides precise location-based address and access-point information for urban and rural dwellings in Saskatchewan, including some First Nations reserves and provincial parks. Product Sample

The CAR dataset was created through collaboration between ISC and the Government of Saskatchewan to improve public safety by aiding in emergency response planning and dispatch.  It can also be used to enhance evacuation and planning, improve accuracy of delivery/collection services, increase efficiency in deploying property-based utility connections and simplify placement of ruralstreet signs.  This dataset is the first of its kind in Saskatchewan, and throughout most of Canada.  Previously, no geographic location points or civic addresses existed for rural and remote areas of the province. To date, there are approximately 470,000 address points mapped, including two provincial parks and one First Nation reserve.

Note:  The CAR dataset is currently only available to private organizations and municipalities.
