  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. ^ In Alberta, "hamlets" are unincorporated communities within incorporated municipalities. See list of hamlets in Alberta.

  7. ^ In Saskatchewan, "hamlets", excluding "northern hamlets", are unincorporated communities within incorporated municipalities. See list of hamlets in Saskatchewan.
  8. ^ In Yukon, "hamlets" are not incorporated communities. See list of hamlets in Yukon.
  9. ^ See "specialized municipality". Though the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass and the Municipality of Jasper are named "municipalities", they are incorporated as "specialized municipalities".
