Note: Population universe
The population universe (target population) of the 2011 Census includes the following groups: Canadian citizens (by birth or by naturalization) and landed immigrants (permanent residents) who: 1) have a usual place of residence in Canada; 2) are abroad either on a military base or attached to a diplomatic mission; or 3) are at sea or in port aboard merchant vessels under Canadian registry or Canadian government vessels. Since 1991, the target population also includes persons with a usual place of residence in Canada who are claiming refugee status, who hold study permits, or who hold work permits, plus family members living with them; for census purposes, this group is referred to as non-permanent residents. The population universe does not include foreign residents.
Note: Impact of municipal restructuring
The boundaries and names of municipalities (census subdivisions) can change from one census to the next because of annexations, dissolutions and incorporations. To minimize the impact of these municipal changes on data dissemination, the 2011 Census team is producing a profile for dissolved census subdivisions. For additional information, please refer to the 2011 Census Dictionary, catalogue number 98-301-X.
Note: Economic family
Refers to a group of two or more persons who live in the same dwelling and are related to each other by blood, marriage, common-law, adoption or a foster relationship. A couple may be of opposite or same sex. For additional information, please refer to the 2011 on-line Census Dictionary, catalogue number 98-301-X.
Note: Population in private households
Persons in private households or families in private households exclude residents or families of collective dwellings, both institutional and non-institutional. Since 1976, tables on the population (or families) in private households exclude Canadian citizens and landed immigrants (permanent residents) who are abroad either on a military base or attached to a diplomatic mission; such persons are included in counts of the total population.
