Census highlights:

Canada’s population as of May 2011 was 33,476,688.
Our population grew by 5.9 per cent between 2006 and 2011.
Saskatchewan had the greatest turnaround in its growth rate among the provinces and territories between 2006 and 2011.
Saskatchewan’s population exceeded 1 million for the first time.
Every province experienced positive growth between 2006 and 2011.
Population is divided in three almost equal regions in Canada: British Columbia and the Prairies; Ontario; as well as Quebec and Atlantic Canada.
One in three Canadians live in one of the three largest census metropolitan areas: Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver.
Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Kelowna, B.C., had the highest rate of population growth since 2006.
Windsor and Thunder Bay, both in Ontario, saw their population decline between 2006 and 2011.
10 of the fastest growing census agglomerations (communities or groups of communities between 50,000 and 100,000 people) were in Alberta.
Milton, Ont., inside the Toronto CMA had the largest growth rate of any city between 2006 and 2011 at 56.5 per cent.
Thunder Bay, Ont. suffered the largest percentage decrease in population, losing 10.3 per cent.
Two cities lost enough population in their urban cores to lose their status as census agglomerations: La Tuque, Que., and Kitimat, B.C.
Five other cities grew their urban centres to more than 10,000 people and became census agglomerations: Steinbach, Man; High River, Strathmore and Sylvan Lake and Lacombe — all in Alberta.
Six cities showed no statistically significant change in population between 2006 and 2011: Campbellton, N.B.; Nicolet, Que.; Thetford Mines, Que.; Kincardine, Ont.; South Bruce Peninsula, Ont.; and West Grey, Ont.
