It looks like Lethbridge, with 105,999 in the CA, should be promoted to a CMA. It seems to be the only metro that should be promoted for this census but that could change if boundaries end up being adjusted once commuting numbers come out.

There are some major discrepancies between the 2010 CMA estimates.

Basically every metro is lower than expected.
Calgary is no longer ahead of Ottawa

Those will likely be split into two within. OR-M might even form parts of 3 ridings.

Calgary should be higher IMO as some of the CAs surrounding should be added to the Calgary CMA, such as Okotoks and Strathmore. That would add over 100,000 people.

Also Ottawa-Gatineau should be larger, as they are quite conservative on the Ontario side (the Quebec side is actually larger despite being more rural) and several municipalities are not included, which would add about 50,000 people.

I wonder why deep rural Quebec areas are all going in over adjacent Ontario areas?

Correct, it appears it is worthy of a promotion.

Red Deer (CA 91,000) is only the City of Red Deer. IMO, Red Deer County and any municipalities within it should also be added, and that should become a CMA as well as it would be over 110,000.

Hehe. Windsor is still larger, but in this context you're right!

It was to be expected considering Windsor was the poster child in Canada for the automotive manufacturing crash that occurred. I read yesterday Oshawa is now the automotive capital of Canada as far as output goes. I think people still probably brand Windsor with that title, but that just hasn't been the case in the last 10 years with all but 1 major car plant closing.

Looks like it's time to update the city signs when you enter the city. (Actually, someone already did change one last year as a joke).


Anyways, congrats to the rest of the country on seeing gains! Congrats to the west for turning the tide in Canada with respects to majority population! Definately a milestone!

Canada’s future is in the West: 2011 Census
BILL CURRY AND JOE FRIESEN
Ottawa— Globe and Mail Update
Published Wednesday, Feb. 08, 2012 8:37AM EST
Last updated Wednesday, Feb. 08, 2012 9:53AM EST


Power and population are shifting to the Prairies and B.C. as Ontario enters a period of relative decline.

The results of the 2011 census released Wednesday confirm what many Canadians already instinctively understand. The country is re-orienting itself away from Central Canada and toward the Pacific. Oil, gas, potash and other resources are drawing migrants and the region’s political and economic influence is growing as a result.

Saint John - 127,761 (4.4% growth rate)

Interesting that Halifax's growth rate is so similar to that of Saint John.....

Atlantic Canadian CA's

CBRM (Sydney) - 101,619 (-4.1% growth rate)
Fredericton - 94,268 (9.3% growth rate)
Charlottetown - 64,487 (8.7% growth rate)
Truro - 45,888 (1.8% growth rate)
New Glasgow - 35,809 (-1.3% growth rate)
Bathurst - 33,484 (-1.8% growth rate)
Miramichi - 28,115 (-2.3% growth rate)
Corner Brook - 27,202 (0.0% growth rate)
Kentville - 26,359 (1.5% growth rate)
Edmundston - 21,903 (-2.5% growth rate)
Campbellton - 17,842 (-0.2% growth rate)
Summerside - 16,488 (2.1% growth rate)
Grand Falls-Windsor - 13,725 (1.2% growth rate)
Bay Roberts - 10,871 (3.5% growth rate)

Top Five Fastest Growth Rates in the East

1- 9.7% (Moncton)
2- 9.3% (Fredericton)
3- 8.8% (St.John's)
4- 8.7% (Charlottetown)
5- 4.7% (Halifax)

CBRM is dropping like a stone (-4.1% growth)

Some other redrawing I would personally do:

* Eliminate the Oshawa-Whitby CMA and merge it into the Toronto CMA.
* Shift Burlington from the Hamilton CMA to the Toronto CMA? That is debatable.
* Combine the Guelph CMA and the Kitchener-Waterloo CMA into one.
* Eliminate the Abbotsford CMA and merge it into the Vancouver CMA.

I wonder what those would do to populations?

Could the Atlantic provinces become the #2 region of growth in Canada while Quebec and Ontario fall apart?

Census results are almost always lower than estimates. Which is more accurate? Who knows.

Here's the municipal data since no one posted it yet: http://www12.statcan.gc.ca/census-re...&T=301&S=3&O=D

Oshawa is closing in on Halifax, just as I had predicted in the other thread.

It will be a really close call next census.



Oshawa should be merged into the Toronto CMA.

Not necessarily. Many people simply don't respond.
