Regional Demographics

Regional Demographics

Here are the region's general demographic statistics and trend charts and graphs. For workforce related demographics, please visit the Labour Market Information page. For community or rural area information, visit the communities page. While these statistics and trends are useful for general analytical purposes, more specific community and boundary-impacted information is more complex in rural areas than Statistics Canada data can show. Do not hesitate to contact the Regional District of Mount Waddington for more information.
