Population Projections by Age and City


A researcher at McMaster needs population projections by age and by city in Ontaro for the next 20 years or longer. I looked at some CANSIM tables but none of them go down to the city level. The age breakdown could be something like: 0-4, 5-9, 10-14, etc. The more granular the geography the better it is. Are these projections available through Stat Can either as a standard product or as a custom tab?


You might wish to contact the Ontario Ministry of Finance - <> - they did CD-based population projections extending out to 2036, but I don’t see municipal ones. They might know if such things exist. The Conference Board of Canada will produce projections <> but I don’t know if they are available for all cities, nor what the cost would be.
