List of designated places in British Columbia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A designated place is a type of geographic unit used by Statistics Canada to disseminate census data.[1] It is usually a small community that does not meet the criteria used to define incorporated municipalities or Statistics Canada population centres (areas with a population of at least 1,000 and no fewer than 400 persons per square kilometre).[2] Designated places are created by provinces and territories, in cooperation with Statistics Canada, to provide data for submunicipal areas.[2]

At the 2011 Census of Canada, British Columbia had 319 designated places.[3] British Columbia’s largest designated place is Saltspring Island Trust Area (part A) with a population of 10,234.[4]
