Bold = Regional Hub



**Hightlights** - Toronto surpasses 6 000 000, Montreal surpasses 4 000 000, Calgary surpasses 1 400 000, Edmonton surpasses 1 300 000, London surpasses 500 000, Saskatoon surpasses 300 000, Barrie reaches 200 000, Lethbridge on target to surpass certain CMAs even before its CA is officially converted into a CMA.



For a full breakdown, see here:







Disclaimer: due to the revision of last years provincial estimate numbers by StatCan, I expect that they may also revise the CMA estimate numbers when the 2014 numbers are released in early 2015. As such, these numbers are definitely subject to dramatic change, however, I am just working with the numbers that we currently have available. Calgary's growth could be as low as 47 000, and Edmonton's as low as 40 000. Many other CMAs could see similar reductions if they occur at all.
