ENPL 313: Rural Community Economic Development: Census/Community Profiles


The Census/Community Profiles contain basic census data for census subdivisions (CSDs), census divisions (CDs)*, census metropolitan areas (CMAs), census agglomerations (CAs), provinces/territories, and Canada.  

*In BC, census divisions = regional districts.

Important: When selecting a community, be sure to differentiate between CSDs and CAs.  The CSD of Prince George (318 sq. km) is the City of Prince George; the CA of Prince George (17,686 sq. km) includes the CSD of Prince George and several neighbouring CSDs.

Census geography reference material.

The Profiles

Note the Change geography/Select another region buttons, which allow comparison with another area (i.e., British Columbia, Canada, etc.).

Once you display your desired table in the selected profiles, click on Download to download the data to Excel.  In the 2001 profiles, the data may be downloaded by clicking on Download file on the right-hand side of the screen.
