Encyclopedia > List of the 100 largest urban areas in Canada by population

The urban areas identified below are defined by Statistics Canada with reference to continuous population density, ignoring municipal boundaries. For example, a rural area within a city's limits may not be included, such as some areas within the city limits of Ottawa, while neighbouring cities that directly continue a city's urban core population will be included, such as Westmount and Montréal. Statistics Canada is the Canadian federal government bureau commissioned with producing statistics to help better understand Canada, its population, resources, economy, society, and culture. ... Motto: Advance Ottawa/Ottawa en avant Coordinates: Country Canada Province Ontario County Established 1850 as Bytown City Mayor Bob Chiarelli Governing body Ottawa City Council MPs / MPPs See list (includes Senators) Area    - City 2,778. ...


For actual "city limits" populations, see List of the 100 largest municipalities in Canada by population, and for metropolitan area populations, see List of the 100 largest metropolitan areas in Canada. The table below lists the 100 largest municipalities in Canada by population, using data from the Canada 2001 census for census subdivisions. ... A metropolitan area is a large population center consisting of a large city and its adjacent zone of influence, or of several neighboring cities or towns and adjoining areas, with one or more large cities serving as its hub or hubs. ... The table below lists the 100 largest metropolitan areas in Canada by population, using data from the Canada 2001 Census. ...


In some cases, this can even lead to two urban areas within the same municipality, one that is part of the core city, and one that is part of a "spill-over" from a neighbouring urban area. Ottawa, for example, includes the urban core (Ottawa - Hull), and then a rural band, and then the densely-populated area of Kanata, creating a second urban area within the same city.


Information is taken from Statistics Canada's 2001 Census.
