2019 municipal census shows steady population growth in the City

 

FORT SASKATCHEWAN, ALBERTA (June 10, 2019) – The 2019 municipal census is now complete, and the population of Fort Saskatchewan is 26,942 – an increase of 2.33% over last year. Of the properties accounted for, 52% submitted their census online.

“I am pleased the City of Fort Saskatchewan continues to be a community of choice for new residents,” said Mayor Gale Katchur, “This growth trend is thanks to our small town feel, high quality of life, and state-of-the-art amenities as we work hard to ensure our community is welcoming.”

The top three dwelling types constructed were single detached, semi-detached and row housing with most of the new construction happening in the Southfort and Westpark areas.

The City of Fort Saskatchewan will use the census results for planning and applying for government funding.

A final version of the census report will be available to residents in August.
