Notes[edit]

  1. ^ See "regional municipality". Nova Scotia's former incorporated "city" municipal status was abandoned in the 1990s as a result of amalgamations to form regional municipalities.
  2. ^ See "ville". There is no official incorporated "city" municipal status in Quebec.
  3. ^ See "municipal district" and "specialized municipality". Alberta abolished its incorporated "county" municipal status in the mid-1990s. All were continued as municipal districts but were permitted to retain the term "county" in their official names. Two of these municipal districts, Mackenzie County and Strathcona County, subsequently changed their status from "municipal district" to "specialized municipality".
  4. ^ Includes the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality, which is incorporated as a "district municipality" despite being named a "regional municipality".[10]
  5. ^ In Alberta, "hamlets" are unincorporated communities within incorporated municipalities. See list of hamlets in Alberta.
  6. ^ In Manitoba, "hamlets" are not incorporated communities. See Category:Hamlets in Manitoba.
  7. ^ In Ontario, "hamlets" are not incorporated communities. See list of hamlets in Ontario.
  8. ^ In Saskatchewan, "hamlets", excluding "northern hamlets", are unincorporated communities within incorporated municipalities. See list of hamlets in Saskatchewan.
  9. ^ In Yukon, "hamlets" are not incorporated communities. See list of hamlets in Yukon.
  10. ^ See "district municipality". Statistics Canada incorrectly reports that Nova Scotia's 12 district municipalities are "municipal districts".
  11. ^ See "specialized municipality". Though the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass and the Municipality of Jasper are named "municipalities", they are incorporated as "specialized municipalities".
  12. ^ See "rural municipality". Manitoba's 2015 municipal amalgamation reforms created 37 rural municipalities that branded themselves simply as "municipalities" in their official legal names
  13. ^ See "specialized municipality". Though the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is named a "regional municipality", it is incorporated as "specialized municipality".
  14. ^ See "district municipality". Though the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality is named a "regional municipality", it is incorporated as a "district municipality".[10]
  15. ^ See "summer village", which is the similar equivalent to Saskatchewan's "resort villages".
  16. ^ In Alberta "rural municipalities" are a group of municipal status types including "improvement districts", "municipal districts" and "special areas".
  17. ^ Statistics Canada incorrectly characterizes 37 rural municipalities as simply municipalities due to their official legal names excluding the term "rural" despite officially holding rural municipality status. Also, Statistics Canada divides the RM of Mountain into two parts.
  18. ^ See "resort village", which is the similar equivalent to Alberta's "summer villages".
  19. ^ While Statistics Canada reports that there are 277 municipalities in Newfoundland and Labrador (NL), including 3 cities and 274 towns,[3] NL's Department of Municipal Affairs and the Canada Revenue Agency both report there are 271 municipalities in NL.[11][12]
  20. ^ See "ville". There is no official incorporated "town" municipal status in Quebec.
