Encyclopedia > Census metropolitan area

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. Census subdivision is a Canadian political region organized by Statistics Canada and determined by the provinces. ...

A CMA has an urban core population of at least 100,000, based on the previous census. Once an area becomes a CMA, it is retained as a CMA even if the population of its urban core declines below 100,000. A census is the process of obtaining information about every member of a population (not necessarily a human population). ...

All CMAs are subdivided into census tracts. A CMA may be consolidated with adjacent Census Agglomerations if they are socially and economically integrated. This new grouping is known as a consolidated CMA, and the component CMA and CAs are known as the primary census metropolitan area (PCMA) and primary census agglomeration(s) (PCA). A CMA may not be consolidated with another CMA. A Census Agglomeration, or CA is a Canadian census geographic concept used to describe smaller urban areas. ...
