Notice to Industry: Standard Point Location Codes

April 15, 2024 – National Capital Region (Gatineau, QC/Ottawa, ON) – Canadian Transportation Agency & Railway Association of Canada

The Canadian Transportation Agency (the Agency) has been the official source of providing and maintaining Standard Point Location Codes (SPLCs) for shipping rail points in Canada for several years. The SPLCs continue to be very useful for Canadian railways and shippers.

Since this function is not part of the Agency’s legislative mandate and to improve this classification process in Canada, the Agency, jointly with the Railway Association of Canada (RAC), is happy to announce that, starting April 15th, 2024, RAC will be taking over as the official source for the administration of the SPLCs in Canada.

For your action

As of April 15th, 2024, please send any request related to SPLC matters to RAC at SPLC@railcan.ca.
