Posted September 25, 2018 05:10:51 The country is becoming more welcoming as a result of the economic boom in Canada’s downtowns, according to a new study by Statistics Canada.
The survey, which has a margin of error of +/- 1.1 per cent, finds the number of Canadians living in major Canadian cities has increased from 10.7 million in 2010 to 16.9 million in 2020.
The city-county ranking was determined by comparing the number and percentages of people living in each municipality.
In 2010, the city-population was roughly equal to the population of the city in which the census was taken.
Now, it is a far cry from that, the survey found.
While the city of Toronto had the most people in the survey, with 13.1 million, it has grown by only 3.1 percent in the past four years.
In contrast, Edmonton, which had the lowest population of any city in the country, grew by 9.1 percentage points in the same time period.
The number of residents living in Toronto and Vancouver was almost the same in 2020, but the city with the highest population has grown at a faster rate than any other Canadian city.
The results are based on data from Statistics Canada’s latest Canadian Community Survey, released Wednesday.
While Vancouver had the largest increase in population from 2010 to 2020, it now has a population of more than 30 million.
The study found there were 4.3 million more Canadians living outside of the capital, as of January 2020.
While Toronto and Montreal still dominate the list, there are a lot of new cities popping up.
The list is dominated by cities in Alberta, British Columbia and Quebec.
Alberta, which is the most populous province in Canada, had a population increase of nearly 4.7 per cent in 2020 and has the largest population in the nation.
The province also had the highest number of new residents, with 7.6 million, while Quebec’s population rose by nearly 5 per cent.
New Brunswick had the third largest increase, with a population growth of 5.1 points.
The top five cities were: Edmonton, Alberta, Ontario, British Colombia, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador.
Montreal was the fourth most populous Canadian city with a growth of 6.5 points, followed by Saskatoon, Alberta.
Halifax, Nova York, Toronto and Hamilton had the smallest growth in population.
Statistics Canada notes that the report is based on people living more than one year.
For the city that is, that is about a third of the population.
In terms of the number, the highest growth was in the Toronto area with an increase of 5,800 people.
The next five most populous cities in Canada were: Vancouver, Ontario; Calgary, Alberta; Montreal, Quebec; and Winnipeg, Manitoba.
