Remember filling out the census last fall? If you do, you’re in good company. The response rate was impressive with over 98% of us participating! The long form census was sent to 25% of Canadians. I received that one and enjoyed filling it out. Census results are an incredible tool for anyone tracing their family tree and for city planners too.
Remember when it was rare to meet a kid that didn’t have brothers and sisters? I have a brother older and younger, and have always felt robbed for not having a sister. Today it is far more common to be an only child.
Ottawa’s population grew by 5.5% from the last time the census was done.
