Calgary’s ward profiles provide information about the population living in private households in each ward from the 2016 Census of Canada. The Census of Canada is conducted every five years, with the next census taking place in 2021.
Because of the significant changes to the ward boundaries in 2017 and changes to the census methodology, these ward profiles should not be compared to ward profiles from other years.
The data in these profiles only includes the population living in private households (residents of collective dwellings such as health care facilities, shelters, and school residences are excluded). The City of Calgary also conducts a civic census, which provides an annual official count of dwellings and people, and includes the population living in collective dwellings.
