Measuring Up: Census 2011 – Municipality of MEAFORD

Posted by Sherry Rioux on April 23, 2012

In this series of blog posts, we’ll reveal the entirely-not-boring-and-surprisingly-interesting results of the latest 2011 Census for the areas of Collingwood, Blue Mountains, Clearview, Wasaga Beach and Meaford. Phew.

First of all, the StatCan website tells us:

“Canada’s 2011 Census held on May 10, 2011 counted 33,476,688 persons.  Between 2006 and 2011, Canada’s population grew by 1,863,791 persons, which translates to a growth rate of 5.9%. That is slightly higher than the 5.4% growth rate observed between the 2001 and 2006 censuses.”

They go on to say that the increase in population was related to an increase in the number of non-permanent residents and immigrants as well as higher fertility.
