Note: Population excluding institutional residents universe

The population excluding institutional residents includes Canadian citizens (by birth or by naturalization) and landed immigrants (permanent residents) excluding those who live in institutions (institutional collective dwellings). Canadian citizens and landed immigrants either: (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, as well as 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: Dissemination of suppressed census subdivisions (CSDs)

To facilitate the publication of data for five dissemination areas for which the 'parent' CSDs have been suppressed due to a high non-response rate, the parent CSDs were given a value of 'null.' This 'null' value appears as two dots (..) in Beyond 20/20 products.

Suppressed CSDs set to 'null' are:

The CSD of Listuguj IRI (2406804)
The CSD of Ocean Man 69 IRI (4701809)
The CSD of Seekaskootch 119 IRI (4717801)
The CSD of Nesuch 3 IRI (5931812)

For additional information, please refer to the 2011 Census Dictionary, catalogue number 98-301-X.

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.
