Peel as a Village, 2006

If Peel Region were a community of 100 people,
it would look something like this...


Overview

In comparison to 2001, 2006 census data reveals that Peel Region has seen a slight increase in its seniors’ population, a greater proportion of foreign-born, a change in its top five source countries for immigrants, an increase in the proportion of those with the highest and lowest education levels, as well as an increasingly diverse linguistic profile. Moreover, it is interesting to note that the area municipality of Brampton increased its share of the total population of Peel Region.
