Welcome to our new Ward 7 residents, 794 to be exact! The new numbers are based on the recently released Calgary 2013 Census, taken in April.
Calgary's population increased from 1,120,225 in 2012 to 1,149,552 in 2013, and Ward 7 is now at almost 80,000 people. Queens Park Village welcomed the most new residents, followed by Banff Trail, and the Downtown Commercial Core.
Ward 7 remains close to 50% owner-occupied, with 41 more dwellings, and a decline in vacancy rate to 3.4%. The census was taken before the flood, so we expect that rate may have fallen even further.
Full details of the 2013 census can be found here.
