A census agglomeration is a census geographic unit in Canada determined by Statistics Canada. A census agglomeration comprises one or more adjacent census subdivisions that has a core population of 10,000 or greater. It is eligible for classification as a census metropolitan area once it reaches a population of 100,000.[1]

As of the 2011 Census, Atlantic Canada had 16 census agglomerations – seven in New Brunswick,[2] three in Newfoundland and Labrador,[3] four in Nova Scotia,[4] and two in Prince Edward Island.[5]
