The only data I could find on some of these parameters is from http://ontario.ca's 'Provincial (Stream) Water Quality Monitoring Network' which can be accessed at http://www.ontario.ca/environment-and-energy/provincial-stream-water-quality-monitoring-network .
The raw data is available from http://www.ontario.ca/environment-and-energy/provincial-stream-...
i think this is a good start, but i can't find who authored it. i would take the kml from this map and upload it to geojson.io where you can fiddle and convert it more.
the wayback machine has what you want albeit a year old. i only checked texas, so maybe i'm wrong. go ...
You can use metadata from the Google i18n Internationalization project (link). For example, the address completion metadata from the libaddressinput package (C++ and Java tools) used for Android (Java) and Chromium OS (C++).
The raw data is stored here: https://i18napis.appspot.com/address
For Canada, it looks like this:
The location datasets page for Canada on OKFN's global open data index seems to contain a pretty comprehensive yet short review on the state of postcode data:
Canada Post is a Crown corporation of the Government of Canada. Commercial use of Canada Post's Postal Code Address Data (PCAD) product has been quoted at $50,600 per year. Canada Post claims ...
Your best bet for up-to-date boundary files at the provincial/state and municipal/county level for the world is the Global Administrative Boundaries Project. Unless you're looking for a specific Canadian/American boundary type (Economic Regions, Special Counties?) this data set should be fine. All data can be downloaded directly through their website.

I don't know this dataset but I think it might be useful: Unités d'aménagement (UA)
L'unité d'aménagement (UA) est une unité territoriale de référence qui s'applique sur les territoires forestiers du domaine de l'État en vertu de l'article 13 de la Loi sur l'aménagement durable du territoire forestier (LADTF). On dénombre actuellement 71 UA sur le ...
One of the best sources for Canadian Geospatial data is the Canadian government's Open Data Portal and the Canadian Census Boundary files.
After doing a quick search through the Census data, it appears that 'Townships' might only be an administrative unit at the provincial level. As such, another option is to download the specific townships directly from ...
Not comprehensive, but ESRI's open data hub has some Canadian neighborhood data.
Unfortunately, Zillow doesn't offer neighborhood data in Canada like in the US, and also Code for America's Click My 'Hood app doesn't actually have neighborhood data, just Canadian provinces.
I've run into this problem as well and have opted not to use the aggregated data in some cases because of how badly it's formatted. If you have access through a Canadian university, I`d highly recommend speaking with your librarian about gaining access to UofT's the CHASS Data Centre. They maintain a database of cleaned/geoprocessed census data and make it ...
North American Breeding Bird Survey is what you'll most likely find useful; BBS has two data options.

All of these datasets include Canada, but ...
