Alberta municipal censuses, 2014

Alberta municipal censuses, 2014

April 1–June 30, 2014

Distribution of Alberta's 269 urban municipalities

Alberta has provincial legislation allowing its municipalities to conduct municipal censuses between April 1 and June 30 inclusive.[1][2] Municipalities choose to conduct their own censuses for multiple reasons such as: to better inform municipal service planning and provision; to capitalize on per capita based grant funding from higher levels of government; or to simply update their populations since the last federal census.[3]

Alberta had 357 municipalities between April 1 and June 30, 2014, down from 358 as at June 30, 2013,[1] which marked the closure of the 2013 legislated municipal census period. At least 39 of these municipalities (10.9%) conducted a municipal census in 2014. Alberta Municipal Affairs recognized those conducted by 37 of these municipalities.[5] By municipal status, it recognized those conducted by 13 of Alberta's 17 cities, 18 of 108 towns, 3 of 93 villages, 1 of 51 summer villages and 2 of 64 municipal districts.[5][2] In addition to those recognized by Municipal Affairs, censuses were conducted by the Town of Drayton Valley and the Municipal District of Lesser Slave River No. 124.[6][7] Some municipalities achieved population milestones as a result of their 2014 censuses. Airdrie and Cochrane grew beyond the 50,000 and 20,000 marks respectively, while both Beaumont and Cold Lake exceeded 15,000. The towns of Morinville, St. Paul and Raymond surpassed 9,000, 6,000 and 4,000 residents respectively, while the Municipal District (MD) of Lesser Slave River No. 124 exceeded 3,000.

  2. ^ No censuses were conducted among Alberta's 5 specialized municipalities, 3 special areas and 8 improvement districts.[5]
  3. ^ The City of Calgary's 2013 municipal census population was originally reported as 1,149,552.[14] This population was revised to 1,156,686 in July 2014.[13] The city's revised 2013 census report explains it was "adjusted upward due to a correction to the automated conversion process."[13]
