Toronto - fastest growing city in North America

6 posts in this topic

I don't know if any of you have noticed, but the Toronto CMA is the undisputed population growth capital of North America.

The Canadian Census is held every 5 years, and here are the latest results.

Toronto CMA 2001 = 4,682,897

Toronto CMA 2006 = 5,813,149

Those aren't estimates, and those numbers aren't including new land area included between 2001 and 2005. What is even more interesting is that adjoining urban CMA's of Oshawa and Hamilton are not included, and if they were the Toronto metropolitan area would currently stand as 6.9 million people.

The Toronto area is undergoing a huge growth spurt like none other, and its amazing to watch it grow. Over 1.1 million people have moved in between 2001 and 2006, and that's just the immediate CMA.

If you will count the other CMAs, don't forget Kitchener and Barrie too because tons of those guys Work and play in Toronto as well, making it almost like 7.5milion

a growth of over a million people in five years, that is extremely impressive. Where are all these people coming from. Are they immigrants or are they Canadians from other areas.
