List of the 100 largest urban areas in Canada by population

The urban areas identified below are defined by Statistics Canada with reference to continuous population density, ignoring municipal boundaries. For example, a rural area within a city's limits may not be included, such as some areas within the city limits of Ottawa, while neighbouring cities that directly continue a city's urban core population will be included, such as Westmount and Montréal.

For actual "city limits" populations, see List of the 100 largest municipalities in Canada by population, and for metropolitan area populations, see List of the 100 largest metropolitan areas in Canada.

In some cases, this can even lead to two urban areas within the same municipality, one that is part of the core city, and one that is part of a "spill-over" from a neighbouring urban area. Ottawa, for example, includes the urban core (Ottawa - Hull), and then a rural band, and then the densely-populated area of Kanata, creating a second urban area within the same city.
