Canadian Data Services Frequently Asked Questions

What is Canadian NCOA processing?

The DIY Portal helps identify movers in your customer databases or mailing lists, using a combination of names and addresses. To identify a match, the portal must recognize your customer’s first and last name against the NCOA database’s first and last name and old address on file. The output file will then contain the new address for your customer.

How much does it cost to process Canadian data services for my file?

For SERP address standardization the price is $1.50 for every thousand records, or $0.0015 per record submitted.

For NCOA the price is $2.90 for every thousand records, or $0.0029 per record submitted.

How often is the Candian dataset updated?

How can I use the Canadian NCOA results to cleanse my data?

If you are preparing a mailing and do not have an existing business relationship with a customer you can update your mailing list with the new address information. You cannot keep the mover data on file and must re-process your mailing list against NCOA mover data services for any subsequent mailing.

If you have an existing relationship with a customer you can update your customer records with the new address information. When a new address is provided, terms of use also allow you to contact the customer to confirm the new address information.

How do I process my file through Canadian data services in the DIY Portal?

Performing Canadian address standardization and NCOA is as simple as uploading your customer file, mapping your name and address fields, and clicking submit. We also have some "How To" videos in the DIY Portal to show you exactly how to process a file.
