10.13 Inside address

Place the recipient’s address below the date and at the left margin, unless it must be moved to fit properly into a window envelope. Except in purely personal mail, the addressee’s full address must be used. Unless using a window envelope, follow these conventions:

  • There is no punctuation at the end of address lines.
  • The address should be single-spaced.
  • When both a street number and a post office box are provided, use only the box number.
  • When the terms east, west, north and south are used with street addresses, they are written with initial capital letters.
  • The postal code is the last item in the address; enter it two spaces after the symbol or name of the province or on a separate line below the names of the municipality and province:

If using a window envelope, follow Canada Post’s guidelines1 for addresses appearing on envelopes and parcels:

  • Type the address entirely in capitals.
  • Do not use any punctuation (other than that required in a proper name: e.g. ST. JOHN’S).
  • Use the two-letter postal abbreviations for provinces and territories.
  • Place the postal code on the same line as the province (or territory), with two spaces between them.
