  Wood Buffalo’s census goes for council approval today
    The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo will be reviewing its 2006 Municipal Census report at a council meeting today. As reported by AltaPop on August 21, Wood Buffalo has tallied its total population at 79,810. However, this includes 1,018 people living on First Nations Reserves.

This is the first time in history that Wood Buffalo has included the population of the First Nations living on the reserves within its boundaries. As a result, comparing its latest census count with last year’s tally will skew the analysis. Therefore, AltaPop has pegged Wood Buffalo’s official population as 78,792 for 2006. This number is consistent with Municipal Affairs� decision to not double-count the 1,018 people on its 2006 OPL.

So, Wood Buffalo has grown by 5,616 people since recording a population of 73,176 in 2005. This increase equals a growth rate of 7.7% since last year. Wood Buffalo experienced a slightly higher growth rate of 9.0%, or an increase of 6,071 people, between 2004 and 2005.


Over 60% of Wood Buffalo’s population increase was observed within Fort McMurray. The oilsands hub absorbed 3,458 more residents over the past year, shifting its population from 60,983 to 64,441 � a growth rate of 5.7%. In comparison, Fort McMurray grew by 8.7% between 2004 and 2005.

Fort McMurray’s population can be further broken down into permanent and shadow populations. In 2004 and 2005, 990 and 2,601 people were considered non-permanent residents respectively. This resulted in a permanent population of 55,121 in 2004 and 58,382 in 2005. Fort McMurray recorded its shadow population at 2,301 in 2006, leaving its current permanent population at 62,140.


From a work camp perspective, Wood Buffalo's population grew 13.8%, or by 1,264 temporary workers, from 9,178 in 2005 to 10,442 in 2006. This growth rate is down, yet is still significant, compared to a larger 19.5% influx of people that joined these work camps between 2004 and 2005.


The past year has been an overall strong year for Wood Buffalo’s 10 other communities. After observing the total population of these communities drop by 301 citizens from 3,316 in 2004 to 3,015 in 2005, their cumulative population has since increased by 847 people to 3,862.

Of particular note:

  • Draper, Fort Fitzgerald, and Saprae Creek experienced population declines;
  • Conklin, Fort MacKay, Gregoire Lake Estates, and Janvier reached new highs in their population histories;
  • Fort Chipewyan and Mariana Lake saw renewed growth after recent sharp population losses; and
  • Anzac continued its steady, albeit growth.
  • Refer to the table below for the current and recent population counts for Wood Buffalo’s 10 small communities.

    COMMUNITY 2004 POP. 2005 POP. 2006 POP.

      Municipal Censuses down according to 2006 OPL
        Alberta Municipal Affairs released its 2006 Official Population List (OPL) today. The 2006 OPL shows that 27 municipalities submitted Municipal Census results before this year’s September 1 deadline, compared to 62 that reported population counts in 2005. The decrease in Municipal Censuses is a result of the simultaneous enumeration of Statistics Canada’s 2006 Federal Census.

    Nearly half of the municipalities that performed independent population counts this year were Towns. These thirteen Towns included Beaumont, Black Diamond, Blackfalds, Canmore, Chestermere, Devon, Drayton Valley, Hinton, Innisfail, Oyen, Rocky Mountain House, Strathmore, and Vegreville. Other urban census performers included the four Cities (Airdrie, Calgary, Lethbridge, and Red Deer), five Villages (Barons, Carmangay, Elnora, Hythe, and Kitscoty), and one Summer Village (Kapasiwin).

    The Municipality of Jasper and the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo account for the two Specialized Municipalities that enumerated its residents in 2006. The population for Wood Buffalo has been adjusted downward in the 2006 OPL from 79,810 unofficially announced by its Mayor in August to 78,792.

    Meanwhile, the County of Grande Prairie No. 1 and the Municipal District of Rocky View No. 44 are the only Rural Municipality entities that performed a census this year. For a summary of the new population counts for the 27 municipalities, see the 2006 Census Tracker at the bottom of AltaPop’s home page.

      2006 Census release dates pushed back
        Due to difficulties enumerating dwellings in Canada's tighter labour markets (namely Alberta), the releases of 2006 Federal Census data has been postponed. For more information on the delay, visit Statistics Canada's 2006 Census Release Dates webpage.

    Originally, the Population and Dwelling Counts information was to be released on February 13, 2007. Now, this data will be released on March 13, 2007, which is roughly the same time of the year the same data from the 2001 Federal Census was released. As a result, AltaPop will not be able to post the Federal Census counts until mid-March.

    At this time, adjusted dates for the remaining seven data releases have not yet been announced, but this information will be posted on the same Statistics Canada's 2006 Census Release Dates webpage sometime later this month.

    OCTOBER 2, 2006
      Municipal District of Rocky View No. 44 reports census count
        The M.D. of Rocky View No. 44 recently reported its 2006 Municipal Census count in a brief News Release. Rocky View, which is Alberta’s largest Municipal District, now has a population of 34,597 rural inhabitants. The new tally shows that the M.D. has grown by 3,909 people since its 2001 Federal Census count of 30,688. The five-year growth equals an annual increase of 2.5%.

    Rocky View was crowned Canada’s fastest growing Rural Municipality between 1996 and 2001. After recording a population of 23,326 in 1996, Rocky View grew by 7,362 over the next five years. Although the annual growth rate of 6.3% between 1996 and 2001 is more than double the rate experienced over the last five years, the M.D. considers the growth strong enough to possibly retain its title once the 2006 Federal Census results are released.

    Rocky View has not yet released a break down of its 2006 Municipal Census results by Hamlet, but the information is expected to be published soon in a census report. Once the information is released, AltaPop will prost the population of Rocky View’s Hamlets, which includes Langdon, Bragg Creek and many others.

      Black Diamond approaching the 2,000 mark
        The Okotoks Western Wheel reported earlier this week that Black Diamond is now 1,986 people strong. The count from its 2006 Municipal Census shows the Town has an increased by 120 people since reporting 1,866 residents in 2001. This increase equals an annual growth rate of 1.3% over the past five years.

    The latest population count reveals Black Diamond is growing at more than double the rate it experienced between its 1996 and 2001 Federal Census tallies. Over this period, the Town of Black Diamond grew by 55 people or 0.6% annually. The Town's population in 1996 was 1,811.

    In the near future, the Town could possibly double in size, but not simply due to population growth. Black Diamond and the neighbourhood Town of Turner Valley (population 1,786) are strongly considering amalgamation. If this was to occur tomorrow, the amalgamated twin towns would have a population of 3,772.

      Population up in Canmore; non-permanents gaining on permanents
        The Town of Canmore was presented with its 2006 Municipal Census results earlier this week and the Canmore Leader has since published the results. Canmore's permanent population has rebounded from last year's decrease, while its non-permanent population is now booming at an even faster rate.

    The Town counted 11,599 permanent residents this year � a modest increase of 157 people or 1.4% from 11,442 reported last year. In comparison, Canmore reported a -0.1% annual growth rate, or a decline in 16 citizens, between its 2003 and 2005 population counts. Its 2003 census tallied 11,458 people.

    Meanwhile, Canmore's seasonal and weekender population spiked up 27.1% over the past year, growing by 1,028 from 3,790 in 2005 to a 2006 figure of 4,818. Previously, the Town recorded a 18.6% annual growth rate, or an increase of 1,027 casual inhabitants, between 2003 and 2005. Its non-permanent population in 2003 was 2,763.

    Considering both of its 2006 population counts, Canmore's combined population is now 16,417, but the non-permanent population is quickly gaining a larger piece of the population pie. See the following table for the recent trends in its population components.

    Year Perm. Pop. Perm. Pop. % Non-Perm. Pop. Non-Perm. Pop. % Total Pop.
    1998 9,711 85.8% 1,613 14.2% 11,324
    1999 10,239 85.3% 1,763 14.7% 12,002
    2000 10,517 84.3% 1,955 15.7% 12,472
    2001 10,843 82.7% 2,273 17.3% 13,116
    2003 11,458 80.6% 2,763 19.4% 14,221
    2005 11,442 75.1% 3,790 24.9% 15,232
    2006 11,599 70.7% 4,818 29.3% 16,417

      No mere growth in Chestermere
        The phenomenal growth that Chestermere has experienced over the past seven years has not only continued, it has accelerated. The Town of Chestermere has reported to AltaPop that its 2006 Municipal Census tallied 9,481 people living in what was a Summer Village just 13 years ago.

    The latest population count shows that the Town has grown by 1,577 in the past year � the highest annual increase it has ever recorded. This increase amounts to a 20.0% growth rate over Chestermere’s 2005 figure of 7,904 people.

    Refer to the following table to compare this data to the numbers associated with the Town’s previous six Municipal Census results since 1999. Notice how Chestermere has nearly quadrupled in size over the past seven years.

    Year Municipal Census Count Annual Increase Annual Growth Rate
    1999 2,552 n/a n/a
    2000 3,558 1,006 39.4%
    2001 3,742 184 5.2%
    2003 5,714 986* 26.3%*
    2004 6,861 1,147 20.1%
    2005 7,904 1,043 15.2%
    2006 9,481 1,577 20.0%

    * Note: Chestermere did not perform a Municipal Census in 2002, so its annual population increase and growth rate have been adjusted as if it grew at a constant rate between 2001 and 2003.

      18,000 County residents surround Grande Prairie
        The County of Grande Prairie No. 1 released its 2006 Municipal Census Results today. The census reports the County's population has climbed by 2,351 people over the past five years to 17,989. This increase represents a strong 3.0% annual growth rate since registering 15,638 people in the 2001 Federal Census.

    The County of Grande Prairie last performed a Municipal Census in 2000. At that time, the County recorded its population at 15,320 � a difference of 318 people from its 2001 count. This shows the County grew at a lower annual rate of 2.1% between 2000 and 2001 compared to its latest annual growth rate of 3.0%.

    The 2006 census results also report the County's largest hamlet, Clairmont, has 2,174 residents. Clairmont has grown at an outstanding annual rate of 9.4% between 2001 and 2006, which is higher than its 8.3% rate between 2000 and 2001. Clairmont has tallied previous population counts of 1,367 in 2000 and 1,481 in 2001.

    AltaPop will post population counts for the remainder of the County of Grande Prairie’s hamlets when the data becomes available.

    AUGUST 26, 2006
      Blackfalds charging towards 5,000
        The Town of Blackfalds unveiled its 2006 population count of 4,741 at its Council Meeting last Tuesday. The burgeoning bedroom community midway between Lacombe and Red Deer has grown by 368 people or 8.4% over the last year.

    The population of Blackfalds in 2004 was 3.955 and it grew to 4,373 by 2005. Compared to its most recent growth, the Town experienced a slightly larger influx of 418 citizens, representing an annual growth rate of 10.6%, between 2004 and 2005.

    Blackfalds has performed a Municipal Census annually since 2001. It is reasonable to expect Blackfalds will perform one again in 2007 due to its inevitable growth. However, the Town may opt out as surpassing the 5,000–person mark may have police funding implications on the municipality.

    AUGUST 21, 2006
      Preliminary counts for Fort McMurray, Wood Buffalo, and Jasper
        Local newspapers in Fort McMurray and Grande Prairie recently reported that the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo has unofficially unveiled its 2006 Municipal Census count. Apparently, Fort McMurray is now home to 64,441 people while Wood Buffalo as a whole has a population of 79,810.

    Wood Buffalo is currently waiting until its census report is completed before making an official announcement, which is expected shortly. The report will include Wood Buffalo’s population breakdown by hamlets and will also note its shadow population. AltaPop will report in greater detail once this information is available.

    Meanwhile, the Municipality of Jasper reported its census tally at its August 15 Council Meeting. According to its Council Highlights, Jasper’s population is now 4,643. The Municipality will soon publish a full report on its website, which should also show Jasper’s shadow population. AltaPop will follow up when the report is posted.

    AUGUST 14, 2006
      Over 6,500 in Drayton Valley
        The Drayton Valley Western Review has reported that the Town of Drayton Valley has announced its long-awaited 2006 Municipal Census count. Drayton Valley has grown by 369 people over the past three years to a population of 6,579. As a result, the Town's annual growth rate since 2003 is pegged at 2.0%.

    In 2003, 6,210 people resided in Drayton Valley, while 5,801 citizens were counted by Statistics Canada in 2001. Therefore, the Town's growth over the past three years is deceivingly smaller than its two-year growth of 409 people, or 3.5% per year, between 2001 and 2003.

    However, the growth recorded between these two years was skewed due to an annexation finalized in 2002/2003. Lands within Brazeau County were swallowed up by Drayton Valley and the people that were already living on those lands suddenly became residents of the Town instead of the County.

    To track the progress of Drayton Valley's 2006 Municipal Census, please see the following six chronological online articles from the Drayton Valley Western Review:

      Unprecedented growth of over 35,000 residents in Calgary
        The City of Calgary unveiled its 2006 population figure in a news release today. As of April, Calgary was home to 991,759 residents. The City has grown by 35,681 people or 3.7% since its 2005 Civic Census, when it recorded a population of 956,078.

    Calgary’s growth over the last year is much greater than it experienced between 2004 and 2005. After recording a population of 933,495 in 2004, the City grew by 23,583 citizens or 2.4%. Calgary’s growth in real numbers increased by over 12,000 people when comparing its 2004/05 and 2005/06 growth statistics.

    Although the recent census count shows that Calgary is 8,241 people short of the million-person milestone, the City is now estimated to have an unoffocial population over 1,000,000, based on a continued 3.7% growth rate. However, official confirmation of this will have to wait until Calgary’s 2007 Civic Census is complete.

    Calgary’s latest increase in population by over 35,000 people is the greatest it has ever experienced in a single year. By adding 35,681 residents since 2005, the City smashed its previous single year increase by 4,442 people. The previous record for growth occurred between 1980 and 1981 when 31,239 new residents were tallied.

    The City of Calgary’s substantial growth can be broken down three ways. The City experienced a Natural Increase (births less deaths) of 9,887 residents, a Net Migration (in-migrants less out-migrants) of 25,557 people, and a gain of 237 people through annexation.

    For more information, please visit Calgary’s Civic Census Information page, which includes links to the 2006 Civic Census Summary, Community Population Comparisons, and Structure Code Definitions.

    JULY 12, 2006
      Rocky climbing in population
        The Demographics page on Rocky Mountain House’s official website shows the Town performed a census this year, resulting in an official population of 6,972. The last time the Town performed a census was in 2004, which reported 6,584 people. Therefore, Rocky has grown by 388 citizens, or by 2.9% per year over the past two years.

    The comparison between Rocky Mountain House’s 2004 and 2006 Municipal Censuses proves that it is growing at an even higher rate than it recorded between 2001 and 2004. Starting at 6,188 people as per its 2001 Municipal Census, Rocky grew by 396 residents over three years, or at an annual growth rate of 2.1%, to reach 6,584 in 2004.

    JULY 11, 2006
      Beaumont just shy of 9,000 threshold
        Last year, you may recall that Beaumont recorded its highest annual growth rate since 1992 at 7.1%. The Town grew by a phenominal 554 people from 7,807 in 2004 to an official population of 8,361 in 2005. So what does the Town do for an encore? It matches its growth rate the following year.

    The Town of Beaumont’s July 11 Council Agenda is reporting that 8,951 people were counted as a result of its annual May 1 Municipal Census. The addition of 590 residents over the past year was not a surprise as Beaumont continues to experience a high level of housing starts.

    If the Town’s 7.1% growth rate was to remain constant over the next two years, it is likely that Beaumont will surpass the 9,500 and 10,000 person milestones as a result of its 2007 and 2008 Municipal Censuses respectively.

    JULY 11, 2006
      Innisfail’s annual growth nearly doubles
        The Town of Innisfail approved the results of its 2006 census at its June 26 Council Meeting. Its Council Minutes report that 7,438 people now call Innisfail home. Considering the Town had a population of 7,208 in 2005, the latest count means the Town grew by 230 residents over the past year, equaling a growth rate of 3.2%.

    Innisfail’s latest growth rate is nearly double what it experienced between 2004 and 2005. After recording a population of 7,090 people in 2004, the Town grew by 1.7% or 118 people over a year to reach its 2005 Municipal Census count.

    JULY 10, 2006
      Strathmore’s census unveils quintuple digits
        Strathmore has become the 22nd settlement in Alberta to surpass the 10,000 population milestone, according to its July 5 Council Agenda. Strathmore’s annual census counted 10,336 people in 2006. The result shows the Town has grown by 7.1% or 683 residents since last year.

    Compared to last year’s growth, Strathmore is now booming at quicker rate. After reporting a population of 9,115 in 2004, the Town grew by 538 citizens or 5.9% to reach its 2005 count. Strathmore’s population was pegged at 9,653 in 2005.

    By surpassing the 10,000 mark, Strathmore joins five other towns in Alberta that are eligible for City status. Like experienced in Cochrane, Okotoks, Canmore, Lacombe, and Stony Plain, it is expected that Strathmore’s Town Council will debate the merits of incorporating as a City in the near future.

    JULY 10, 2006
      Population up in the Hinton, but not yet to that of a City
        Hinton’s 2006 Municipal Census shows the Town is now home to 9,769 residents. The Town of Hinton has increased by 364 people since reporting a population of 9,405 from the 2001 Federal Census. This increase equals an annual growth rate of 0.8% over the past five years.

    Hinton is now 231 people short of meeting the 10,000 milestone, which enables eligibility to pursue City status. The Town hoped its census would show a population in excess of 10,000 so that it could consider incorporation as a City in time for its 50th Anniversary on November 1. However, this consideration will now have to wait.

    Regardless, Hinton’s growth of 364 people has contributed to regaining more than 50% of the residents lost between 1996 and 2001. With the 1996 Federal Census reporting a population of 9,961, Hinton posted a loss of 556 people by 2001, or a -1.1% growth rate per annum over the five-year period.

    Sources include a July 10, 2006 article, Municipal census results lower than expected, by Jessica Kerr in the Hinton Parklander (online version).

    July 20, 2006 Update: Since posting this article, the Town of Hinton has since posted its 2006 Municipal Census Report and News Release on its website.

    JUNE 29, 2006
      Census shows continued strong growth in Devon
        The Town of Devon published its 2006 Municipal Census Highlights on its official website today. The census reports that Devon was home to 6,361 residents as of April 18, 2006. The Town has increased by 266 people, a growth of 4.4%, since registering a population of 6,095 in 2005.

    Devon actually grew at a higher annual rate of 7.3% between its two previous censuses held in 2003 and 2005. However, growth in Devon is still strong and is expected to return to a similar level once the Town completes the preparation of recently annexed lands for development.

    JUNE 20, 2006
      Over 7% growth in Airdrie since last year
        Airdrie City Council adopted a new official population yesterday as a result of its 2006 Municipal Census. In one year, the City of Airdrie has grown by 1,966 residents, or by 7.3%, to a population of 29,035. Airdrie’s population was pegged at 27,069 in 2005.

    The census results show that the City of Airdrie is growing at a higher rate than it was a year ago. Between its 2004 and 2005 Municipal Censuses, Airdrie grew by 1,463 citizens, which equalled a growth rate of 5.7% over that one year period.

    In a news release posted on the City’s website today, Airdrie is forecasted to continue its strong growth over the next three years. Airdrie’s estimated population for 2009 is 33,273. The City should handily surpass the 30,000 milestone in time for its 2007 Municipal Census results.

      Consistent, steady growth in Lethbridge
        The significant growth that was recorded in Lethbridge between its 2002 and 2005 Municipal Censuses resulted in City Council directing that a count be undertaken annually. As a result, its 2006 Municipal Census has been completed and the City of Lethbridge is now 78,713 people strong.

    Compared to the 2005 count, the City has grown by 1,511 people or 2.0% in just one year. This increase is consistent with the growth experienced between 2002 and 2005. Lethbridge grew by 2.1% per annum over this period, which equalled roughly 1,495 new citizens per year. In 2005, the City’s population was 77,202.

    If this steady growth continues, Lethbridge should surpass the 80,000 milestone by the completion of its 2007 Municipal Census. For more information on its 2006 Municipal Census, please visit Lethbridge’s Census page.

    MAY 26, 2006
      Red Deer jumps way past 80,000 milestone and Strathcona
        For a second year in a row, the City of Red Deer is the first municipality in Alberta to announce its 2006 Municipal Census count. Today, Red Deer reported a population of 82,971, showing an unprecendented growth of 3,889 residents or 4.9% in just one year. In 2005, Red Deer’s population was pegged at 79,082. Its previous 2004-to-2005 growth rate was recorded at 4.2%, or an influx of 3,159 people.

    With the latest population count, Red Deer not only jumps well ahead of the 80,000 resident milestone, but it also places the City 2,739 citizens ahead of Strathcona County. Therefore, Red Deer now has comfortable bragging rights as Alberta’s third largest municipality. The City temporarily held this title for four months last year for the first time in its history until Strathcona reported a population of 80,232 on September 20, 2005.

    For more information on Red Deer’s 2006 Municipal Census, please see today’s news release on its website. The City will release a formal report early in the summer and plans to conduct another census in 2007.

      2006 Census of Canada enumeration begins; release dates published
        Census Day is two weeks away, but enumeration has already begun. Statistics Canada’s 2006 Census of Canada is underway as of today. Over the next two weeks, census forms will be provided to all households across Canada. Forms can be completed by mail or, for the first time in history, via the Internet at www.2006census.ca. All you need is the Access Code from your census form to begin, so get started and “Count Yourself In Today!�

    Once census enumeration is complete, Canadians will have to be patient for the results. The first major release, which will be Population and Dwelling Counts will not be published until nearly nine months from Census Day. This data will be released on February 13, 2007, while the last major release is scheduled for April 22, 2008.

    Although it will be a long wait, the major releases for the 2006 Census of Canada are generally a month earlier than all the major release dates from the 2001 Census of Canada. See all of Statistics Canada’s 2006 Census Release Dates for more details.

    FEBRUARY 5, 2006
      Statistics Canada gearing up for the 2006 Federal Census
        Canada is exactly 100 days away from its next quinquennial census. On May 16, 2006, roughly 32.5 million Canadians from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean to the Arctic Ocean will stand up to be counted by Statistics Canada (StatCan).

    StatCan will implement new technology in the enumeration and organization of data collecting in the 2006 Census of Canada. In fact, households will have the opportunity to complete their census forms via the Internet for the first time in Canadian history starting May 2, 2006.

    Like all censuses, AltaPop will be particularly interested in the 2006 Federal Census as it will result in the latest population counts for every municipality as well as some unincorporated places in Alberta. The data will provide an accurate snapshot of the growth that all of Alberta’s communities have experienced in the past five years.

    In addition, the census will level the playing field for these communities as some municipalities choose to perform one or more Municipal Census between each Federal Census. The uniform methodology used by StatCan for each municipality across the country will be ideal for inter-municipal comparisons.

    AltaPop will be most interested in the Population and Dwelling Counts data release from the 2006 Federal Census. This was the first data that was released from the 2001 Federal Census. It was unveiled the following March -- 10 months after the census began.

    Although StatCan has not yet committed to release dates for the 2006 census, they have advised AltaPop that the Population and Dwelling Count data should be released in early 2007, likely in less than 10 months. AltaPop will present StatCan’s timelines for the 2006 census data release dates as soon as an announcement is made.
