Data from the 2011 Census is being released Wednesday and according to Stats Canada, the national population grew 5.9 percent since 2006, to almost 33.5 million. The GTA’s population grew by 9.2 percent, and Stats Can spokesperson André Langdon says the City of Toronto itself, can thank downtown condo development for much of its growth. Durham Region meanwhile, is also booming, with population growth of 8.4 percent. Ajax leads the way with growth of nearly 22 percent. Langdon says at this time, Stats Can can only present figures, and not insight into why some areas are booming more than others, but as more census data is released over the course of the year, it might paint a clearer picture.
