The census is Canada's largest and most comprehensive data source conducted by Statistics Canada every five years. The Census of Population collects demographics and linguistic information on every man, woman and child living in Canada.
The data shown here is provided by Statistics Canada from the 2006 Census as a custom profile data order for the City of Vancouver, using the City's 22 local planning areas. The data may be reproduced provided they are credited to Statistics Canada, Census 2006, custom order for City of Vancouver Local Areas.

Statistics Canada is committed to protect the privacy of all Canadians and the confidentiality of the data they provide to us. As part of this commitment, some population counts of geographic areas are adjusted in order to ensure confidentiality.
Counts of the total population are rounded to a base of 5 for any dissemination block having a population less than 15. Population counts for all standard geographic areas above the dissemination block level are derived by summing the adjusted dissemination block counts. The adjustment of dissemination block counts is controlled to ensure that the population counts for dissemination areas will always be within 5 of the actual values. The adjustment has no impact on the population counts of census divisions and large census subdivisions.
