AltaPop, the Alberta Population website, presents the population and incorporation history of municipalities and communities within the Province of Alberta.
The data presented is a result of ongoing research that commenced in the summer of 2000.
The historic population figures on AltaPop are counts from past federal censuses conducted by Statistics Canada between 1901 and 2011 inclusive, and municipal censuses conducted by Alberta's individual municipalities from 1960 to the present year inclusive, which were accepted by Alberta's Ministry of Municipal Affairs.
The dates of municipal incorporations, including amalgamations and dissolutions, have been provided to augment the population data where available or applicable.
For your convenience, AltaPop has been divided into the five sections presented in the above banner.
If you rest your cursor over a section link in the above banner, a brief description of that section will appear for your information.
Note that in order to view the data available within these sections, you will need to download Adobe� Reader�.
