Addressing is integral to the County’s Geographic Information System and the 911 emergency response system. Regular addressing updates are forwarded to the 911 control center to ensure that they have the most current information and are able to effectively co-ordinate a response in all emergency situations.
Canada Post is continuing to adopt the County’s municipal addressing system for mail delivery. This information will soon appear on certificates of title as real estate passes from owner to owner.
House numbers are assigned by the County and become active upon the issuance of Building Permits in the case of new construction. All existing properties were assigned addresses in 1997.

Posting Your Address
It is very important, whether in rural or urban areas, that addresses are posted correctly and are easily visible from the road. This is for the safety of all residents so that fire, ambulance or police can find the property in case of emergency. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to ensure their address remains visible does not get overgrown by trees, shrubs, etc.
To aid in the timely response from any emergency services, callers are requested to verify their full address (house number and street name) to the 911 dispatch operator and the address must be posted correctly and in plain view from the road.
- Numbers are not to be less than 2.75 inches (70 mm) in height.
- Signs should be mounted on a light-reflective panel, not less than 8 x 12 inches (20.5 x 30.5 cm).
- Letters and panel should have contrasting colors.
- In urban areas the proper address shall be posted in a conspicuous place no higher than the first story of a dwelling.
- In rural areas the proper address shall be posted in a conspicuous place either on a sign adjacent to the driveway at property line or on the mail or paper delivery box.

Canada Post assigns all postal codes. Rocky View County does not create the postal codes and therefore do not give out postal codes. To receive the correct postal code for a property, please contact Canada Post directly at 1.900.565.2633 (fees apply) or online at www.canadapost.ca. A current address is required for Canada Post to determine a postal code.
