Defining Canada’s Downtown Neighbourhoods: 2016 Boundaries

Articles and reports: 91F0015M2021001


Currently, Statistics Canada does not provide a geographic unit representative of downtown neighbourhoods within its standard geographic classification. The objective of this article is to identify areas which accurately represent the downtowns located in the census metropolitan areas (CMA) of Canada, using Censuses of Population and local knowledge. These boundaries will allow a more effective dissemination of essential statistics by Statistics Canada, especially in the context of future census data releases.
