May 1 to June 30 2018
The 2018 Municipal Census has ended.
Between May 1st and June 30th, residents were counted in for the 2018 municipal census.
A draft report was presented to Council at the July 24 2018 Council Meeting. The population count of 10,125 is subject to acceptance and approval from Municipal Affairs, anticipated to occur in late-September.
The winner of the online incentive prize was selected through a random draw of 1,554 online entries received during the eligibility period May 1 and May 15. The homeowner chose to receive a Tablet, valued at approximately $1000.
Through our annual municipal census, information is used to assist departments in planning for the needs of our community. Decisions regarding future transportation networks, the addition and locations of schools, parks, utilities and fire protection facilities are based to a large extent on statistics on population growth collected in the municipal census. As well, many of the grants received from the Province are awarded on a per capita basis. An up to date and current census count ensures that maximum grant funds can be received.
The Town would once again like to thank residents for being counted in.
