Manitoba's population is 1,338,109 as of July 1, 2017 quarterly population estimate. 20,000 person year over year increase.
It's amazing that 20 years ago it seemed Manitoba would be stuck at 1.1 million and Winnipeg at 600,000 for the foreseeable future. 20 years from now Winnipeg should be over 1 million and Manitoba approaching 1.7 million.

Anyone know the rate SK is growing compared to MB?

Always been curious, as their GDP is significantly higher. $14 billion more, to be precise. Per capita GDP in SK is $70k compared to MB's $50k... that's a huge difference.

I think up until the oil downturn Manitoba and Saskatchewan were neck and neck for annual growth (by numbers, not %) for a few years before the downturn. They grew by about 15,000 year over year.

The rate of population growth was higher in SK in 2013 and 2014, but the rate has been higher in MB in the last three years.

(% growth 2013-17)

MB 1.2 1.2 1.1 1.8 1.5
SK 1.7 1.4 0.9 1.5 1.3

% of workforce that commutes to Winnipeg in surrounding municipalities 2016 census.

1. West St. Paul 86.2%
2. East St. Paul 84.0%
3. Headingley 77.7%
4. MacDonald 75.9%
5. Ritchot 74.2%
6. Rosser 73.6%
7. St. Francois-Xavier 72.2%
8. Springfield 70.8%
9. Tache 65.4%
10. St. Clements 58.3%
11. Niverville 55.8%
12. Woodlands 54.1%
13. St. Andrews 53.4%
14. Stonewall 50.4%
15. Rockwood 49.7%
16. Cartier 49.7%
17. Brokenhead 36.8%

So it looks like Niverville, Woodlands and St. Andrews have met the threshold to be included in the CMA (from what I understand). If St. Andrews is included, Selkirk may be as well so there isn't a "hole" in the CMA.
By 2021, Rockwood and Cartier will likely exceed 50%, which would also see the inclusion of Stonewall and Teulon into the CMA.
It's possible that by 2026, the entire capital region (minus Brokenhead) and Woodlands will be part of the CMA.

total population growth 2016-2017 - 14,784

We are really starting to close in on a million. I know I've said it a hundred times already, but the growth rate is impressive considering how it felt like were stuck in the 600s seemingly forever.

It does feel like it is starting to snowball a bit. It seems like not that long ago we were averaging 10k to 12k per year which seemed like a lot. Now we are up to 14+k.

If we use 13,000k increase for an average (probably conservative) it will be 5 1/2 years to 900k.

This year as of July 1 the population is expected to hit ~840k


Winnipeg is not doing too bad all things considered. I’m surprised at how well the Albertan cities are doing even during their downturn. So many people I know (myself included) chose to leave Calgary during the slide. I suppose that’s the power of anecdotal vs objective reality haha.

Winnipeg is leaving Quebec and Hamilton in the dust, after falling behind them in population during the late 1990s

^Winnipeg never fell behind Hamilton, but Hamilton has grown at a pretty brisk pace in recent years. There was speculation in the early 2000s that Hamilton would surpass Winnipeg in short order, but it hasn't yet. Kitchener-Waterloo has had a pretty good growth spurt recently too. Anyway, good to see Winnipeg well above 800K and growing.

^ It's probably just a matter of time before Hamilton takes a commanding population lead over Winnipeg as it continues to get subsumed by the GTA.

I'm not so sure about that. I always thought Hamilton was just a year or two away from that exact scenario but it seems it's just a bit too far away. Also, there's a growing trend toward urbanization (the true form, not the suburbanization we all know so well) meaning the GTA's footprint may remain static for a very, very long time along with every other city in northern North America. The question is how long it will take for that trend to affect the demand for greenfield space.

There is a lot of construction, and proposals in Hamilton for a reason. Don’t be surprised if it overtakes Winnipeg.

Population growth is great, but my interest in the amount of downtown construction is greater. A closer look at the demographics would result in either a “meh” attitude, or a reason to rejoice (education levels, income).

The regional transit connections between Hamilton and Toronto are starting to improve considerably. If there is frequent and regular express train service from downtown Hamilton to Union Station and it takes you, say, an hour to go from the office to your doorstep, then suddenly Hamilton becomes a more appealing place to live.

This isn't a new model, pretty well any major global city served by high-speed rail sees this phenomenon. There are people who work in Paris and live in, say, Tours, and take the TGV to work most days. Winnipeg could never benefit from such a model. If you ask me it's not the end of the world, though... Hamilton will grow significantly but it will come at the cost of basically evolving into a Toronto suburb. Winnipeg will always be a standalone city.

To a degree. Regardless if someone labels it a suburb of TO, it does not change the fact that it is reinventing itself, and developing its downtown with many great projects.
