Grey wave gains momentum: New data sheds light on Basin-Boundary demographics

Grey wave gains momentum: New data sheds light on Basin-Boundary demographics

There are now more seniors than youth in the Columbia Basin-Boundary region, and our population is aging faster than the overall populations for Canada and British Columbia.

Statistics Canada recently released data from the 2016 Census on age and sex of the population. While Basin-Boundary populations are showing certain demographic trends that are common across much of the country, the data shows that there are other issues that are unique to rural places, including the many diverse communities in our region.

Growing, shrinking, and aging – Columbia Basin-Boundary regional population update

Growing, Shrinking, and Aging – Columbia Basin-Boundary regional population update

Demographic information is critical for local planning. This information can help us understand who makes up our population and what their needs are. As Statistics Canada releases more information from the 2016 Census, the RDI will be able to provide new updates, starting with an Update on Population Numbers. This update presents and compares numbers from BC Stats and Statistics Canada, and discusses why and how the two differ. From the 2016 Census data we see growth in 20 of our 28 municipalities across the region.
