The following table provides 'S' result code descriptions for Canada.

Result Code Description
Street level geocoded candidates return a result code beginning with the letter S. The second character in the code indicates the positional accuracy of the resulting point for the geocoded record.
S8 Single match, point located at either the single point associated with an address point candidate or at an address point candidate that shares the same house number. No interpolation is required.
S7 Single match, located at an interpolated point along the candidate’s street segment. When the potential candidate is not an address point candidate and there are no exact house number matches among other address point candidates, the S7 result is returned using address point interpolation.
S5 Single match, point located at a street address position.
S4 Single match, point located at the center of a shape point path (shape points define the shape of the street polyline).
S3 Single match, point located at postal centroid of FSALDU
S1 Single match, point located at postal centroid of FSA
S0 Single match, however, no coordinates are available (this is a very rare occurrence).
SC Single match where the original point has been moved a specified distance (usually along a perpendicular line) toward or away from the associated street segment. This result code can be returned only when both a point geocoding dataset and a street segment geocoding dataset are available and when the centerline offset feature is used.
