Unlike many major urbanized areas, Calgary developed as a "unicity" having incorporated most of its suburbs into the city proper. In the past, when the city limits reached the borders of neighbouring municipalities, they were simply annexed into the population of Calgary. Therefore, the vast majority of the region's population actually lives within the City of Calgary (proper) whose population reached 1,000,000 on July 25, 2006.

Calgary's census metropolitan area

The Census Metropolitan Area is the definition Statistics Canada uses to determine the demographics of greater Calgary (this is the same for other large Canadian cities). The CMA's boundary takes in the City of Calgary along with the Municipal District of Rocky View and all the municipalities enclosed within the MD of Rocky View—these include the City of Airdrie, the Town of Cochrane, the Town of Chestermere and the village of Beisker. Rocky View also includes a number of unincorporated hamlets such as Springbank and Bragg Creek. The Calgary CMA is the 5th largest metropolitan area in the country and the largest in Alberta. In 2006, Statistics Canada estimated the population of the CMA to be 1,107,200. The land area of this region is 5,083 square kilometres (1,962.6 sq mi) A census metropolitan area, or CMA is a Canadian census subdivision comprising a large urban area (known as the urban core) and adjacent areas (known as urban and rural fringes) that have a high degree of social and economic integration with the urban core. ...

Alberta Census Division No. 6

Statistics Canada also uses an additional area centred on Calgary, Census Division 6, for regionalized statistical purposes.

Calgary Regional Partnership

The Calgary Region (economic region) is essentially represented by the Calgary Regional Partnership (CRP). The CRP is a cooperative of economically associated municipalities in the area. Since the CRP is an organization and not an area per se, not all of the municipalities within the sphere of what is effectively greater Calgary are members. Unlike the CMA, the Calgary Economic Region had an estimated population of 1,167,700 at August of 2006. The Calgary Regional Partnership includes the Municipal District of Rocky View, the City of Airdrie, the Town of Cochrane, the Town of Chestermere, Town of Okotoks, the Town of High River, and the Municipal District of Foothills. It also includes the Town of Canmore, and the Municipal District of Bighorn to the west and the Town of Strathmore to the east. The towns of Crossfield and Banff are recent additions to the CRP. Many of the communities of the CRP are also part of the Calgary Health Region. The population of the CRP is predicted to reach 1.2 million in 2008 and 1.3 million by 2013.
