Mobility

Mobility refers to the movement of individuals on a geographic basis, whether it’s international migration between B.C. and the rest of the world or inter-provincial migration between B.C. and other Canadian jurisdictions. The term mobility encompasses those statistics that show the number of migrants, where they’re going to and where they’re coming from.

http://bcstats.gov.bc.ca/StatisticsB.../Mobility.aspx


Some great information to check out. Quarterly and Annual migration flow maps and data.

I remember when Courtenay was still only 20 000-ish people. The Comox Valley has really exploded in growth over the past 15 years.

What's most interesting to me and rarely ever reported is that the Lower Mainland as a region is closing in on 3 million people now with Metro Van, Abbotsford, Chilliwack and some of the other small municipalities thrown in. That's a pretty huge testament to how the growth has been (some people still think Vancouver is a 2 million level pop region based on older stats).

BC divided into three equal parts...

Not sure if there are any more recent figures, but as of the 2011 census Surrey was still 140,000 people back of Vancouver. That number is definitely closer now, but it will still be a while until Surrey catches up.

Calgarian Jan 16, 2017 7:58 PM

Surrey will probably pass Vancouver in 10 years.

Never realized Saanich was bigger than Victoria, that's a part of BC I haven't been to in a very, very long time...

It was the 1966 census when Saanich passed the population of Victoria

Saanich 58845

Victoria 57453

The census before 1961

Victoria 54941

Saanich 48876

B.C Population estimates CMA/CA 2016
 
I understand the Census for stats Canada will be out Feb 8th

Since I posted the estimates last year I thought I would continue this year also.

This is a list of population estimates based on July 2016. This information is based on B.C. stats.

http://www.bcstats.gov.bc.ca/Statist...Estimates.aspx



Vancouver 2,558,029 1.6% change 2015/2016
Victoria 365,361 1.2%
Kelowna 197,017 1.6%
Abbotsford-Mission 181,169 1.4%
Nanaimo 107,462 2.5%

Kamloops 104,449 0.8%
Prince George 83,494 -1.1%
Vernon 62,196 0.8%
Courtney 56,359 0.9%


Looks like Nanaimo has some strong growth. Both Chilliwack and Kelowna have slowed somewhat. Chilliwack has passed Kamloops for 6th largest.
Prince George is still losing population.

Those must be the regional district boundaries? BC's population is actually even more concentrated than the map suggests, because hardly anybody lives in that vast yellow area on the southern island west of Victoria CMA.

Capital Regional District:
pop. 360,000
2,340 square km

Victoria CMA:
pop. 345,000
696 square km

The CRD west of Victoria CMA could also be coloured blue, is my point.

zahav Jan 28, 2017 8:16 PM

Not many surprises in those numbers, except Port Moody! That was for YEARS one of the fastest growing cities, through the 90s and even up to a couple years ago. Now it's shrinking??? What a turnaround wow

Glacier Jan 30, 2017 11:42 PM

150 Mile House is the fastest growing city in BC, but that aside, Surrey and Saanich will never be more dense and Vancouver and Victoria, and it's density the determines who is "greater."
