2016 Calgary Census Results

The City of Calgary recently released its census and as always it makes for some interesting reading. That said, the importance of a city like Calgary sending the time, effort and money to complete a census cannot be overstated. The census is most definitely important. Our whole representative democracy is based on it, as it ensures that each community gets the right number of representatives in government." Because representation is based on population, an up-to-date tally is essential.

The census also helps with the equitable distribution of public funds, for things like educational programs, healthcare, law enforcement and highways as the equitably distributing the tax dollars requires up-to-date population data. The information provided can also help lawmakers design new legislation, while being of interest to marketing companies and political groups. In broad terms, the census helps us see how our city is changing.

And it is for this reason that the Calgary Census Bureau was nothing if not persistent! To download a full copy of the 2016 Calgary Census Results Book simply CLICK HERE.
