This table represents the 2021 and 2031 Peel Regional Council adopted (ROPA 24) and provincially approved forecast numbers for Peel and the area municipalities.  These forecasts are provincially allocated to Peel Region under The Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe (2006). While these forecasts align to Peel Regional Official Plan ROPA 24, they are derived using 2006 Census base year data. The Region is in the process of bringing these forecasts into conformity with Amendment 2 to the Growth Plan. Updated forecasts will be provided once a new Regional Official Plan amendment has been adopted by Council and approved by the Province.

Census Undercount Table

The census undercount (also known as census undercoverage) refers to the number of Canadian residents not recorded in the Statistics Canada census. In each census, despite census officials working hard to count the entire population on Census Day, some Canadian residents are missed and some are counted more than once. Statistics Canada adjusts official population estimates to include net undercoverage estimates (persons missed minus persons counted more than once).

To learn how to calculate total population with census undercount, please read the Guide to Calculating Total Population with Census Undercount (PDF 34KB, 1 page).

For more information on why the undercount exists and how it is determined, please consult the Census Undercount FAQ.
