List of the 100 largest municipalities in Canada by population

The table below lists the 100 largest municipalities in Canada by population, using data from the Canada 2006 census for census subdivisions. [ [http://www12.statcan.ca/english/census06/data/popdwell/Table.cfm?T=301&S=3&O=D] ]

This list includes only the population within a municipality's boundaries as defined at the time of the census. Many municipalities are part of a larger census metropolitan area or census agglomeration. For their ranking, see the list of the 100 largest metropolitan areas in Canada.

List

*Populations shown for 2001 and 1996 are what the populations would have been if the municipal boundaries were as defined in 2006. Because of mergers and demergers, these numbers may be different from the populations for the municipalities as their boundaries were actually defined in those years.
*These are only city proper populations; suburbs outside city limits are not included.
*Quebec municipal classifications such as "Ville" have not been translated, because they do not directly correspond to the meaning generally understood by their English translations. Translating to "City" would be inaccurate.
*Some municipalities calculate their populations differently than Statistics Canada. For example, Statistics Canada does not count post-secondary students in the municipality where they are attending school, yet those municipalities may count them.
