Reports & Statistics



Census data is a valuable tool for land use planning. Understanding the rate and extent of growth and urbanization helps local governments to manage their communities, including planning the location of new housing and infrastructure, as well as improving transportation links, public services and the environment. Census information is also vital to the preparation of Official Community Plans, which are required by the BC Local Government Act .
