Does anyone know how many people are in the areas to the south that aren't counted in the CMA? We're talking Okotoks and Heritage Point right?
The numbers for that area are kind of confusing. It appears to be around 70,000 in total. Census Division #6 is essentially Calgary's CMA + Foothills MD, and Mountain View County. http://www.albertafirst.com/profiles/cd/cd6.asp
Census Division 6: 1,160.9
Calgary CMA: 1,079.3
That leaves 81, 600 people between Foothills MD and Mountain view county.
According to Statscan Mountain View County had 12,391 people, so that would leave Foothills MD (and the towns inside of it) with 69,200 people which seems about right.
According to Statscan
High River 10,700
Foothills MD 19,700
Which add up to 46,700. I'm guessing the other 23,000 must be made up of other communities like Black Diamond, etc..
