This template is used to provide a summary of selected census figures released by Statistics Canada for the 2006 and 2001 census years. This template has been designed to allow for future census years to be added without the need for changing existing template usages (except to add the new census data of course).

By default, the box will be located at the left margin of the article. The location can be overridden by specifying the margin parameter which overrides the CSS margin property.
