Gender refers to an individual's personal and social identity as a man, woman or non binary person (a person who is not exclusively a man or a woman).
Gender includes the following concepts:
  • gender identity, which refers to the gender that a person feels internally and individually;
  • gender expression, which refers to the way a person presents their gender, regardless of their gender identity, through body language, aesthetic choices or accessories (e.g., clothes, hairstyle and makeup), which may have traditionally been associated with a specific gender.
A person's gender may differ from their sex at birth, and from what is indicated on their current identification or legal documents such as their birth certificate, passport or driver's licence. A person's gender may change over time.
Some people may not identify with a specific gender.
The gender category "Men+" includes men (and/or boys), as well as some non-binary persons.
Persons aged 15 to 64 per person aged 65 and older
The sum of the persons aged 15 to 64 compared to the population aged 65 and older.
Estimated population and population according to the census are both defined as being the number of Canadians whose usual place of residence is within that area, regardless of where they happened to be on Census Day. Also included are any Canadians staying in a dwelling in that area on Census Day and having no usual place of residence elsewhere in Canada, as well as those considered non-permanent residents.
The gender category "Women+" includes women (and/or girls), as well as some non-binary persons.
Unless otherwise specified, the term “year” refers to the period beginning July 1 of a given year and ending June 30 of the following year.
