2016 Census data - Ottawa is growing...

New census data shows the population of the metropolitan area of Ottawa - Gatineau outpaced the national growth rate over the last five years.
Statistics Canada information from last year's census shows our region grew by 5.5% over the past five years, to a population of 1,323,783.
The national population growth rate was 5.0%, while Ontario's was 4.6%.
