May 6, 2015 RELEASE: Health region data now included within the 2011 Census and NHS Profiles

As part of the ongoing partnership with Health Statistics Division, the Census Program Dissemination Project is pleased to announce that the 2011 Census Profile and the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS) Profile have been updated to include census and NHS data for the 121 health regions in Canada plus an additional 14 Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) in Ontario.

For both profile products, the place name, postal code and geographic code searches have been updated to now display health regions in the results. The health region names and boundaries are those that came into effect in December 2013. Historically, census data for health regions were also included within the 2001 and 2006 Census Community profiles.
