Age and gender for population centres Toronto and Calgary

I have a researcher who is looking for annual data broken down by single years of age and sex for the population centers of Toronto for the years 2011 to 2015 and Calgary for the years 2008 to 2013.  He’s tried CANSIM and I’ve looked through various other data sources, but couldn’t find the requested data for these population centers. Would he have to request a custom tabulation?

“Unfortunately, we do not have single years of age by population centers (or urban areas in 2006 and earlier) in any of our standard product line.  Also, we only have data for the 2001, 2006, 2011 and the 2016 Censuses.  For annual data you would need to contact the Demography division for the population estimates.

Data for 2001, 2006, 2011 and 2016 can be ordered via the nearest regional office as a custom data tabulation.”
