Commuting Patterns and Places of Work of Canadians, 2006 Census: Portrait of census metropolitan areas and their municipalities

In 2006, the number of people who worked at home or whose usual place of work was in a census metropolitan area (CMA) reached 10 million, an increase of 7.9% over 2001. This was a slightly smaller increase than that recorded in the mid-size urban centres (+8.7%) but much higher than that reported in the territories, rural areas and small towns (+1.8%).
