List of census agglomerations in Alberta

A census agglomeration is a census geographic unit in Canada determined by Statistics Canada. A census agglomeration comprises one or more adjacent census subdivisions that has a core population of 10,000 or greater. It is eligible for classification as a census metropolitan area once it reaches a population of 100,000.[1]

At the 2011 Census, the Province of Alberta had 16 census agglomerations,[2] up from 14 in the 2006 Census.[3] The four added in 2011 were High River, Lacombe, Strathmore, and Sylvan Lake.[4]
