EDMONTON — New figures from Statistics Canada show the Edmonton region population continuing to expand.

As of July 1, 2014, it’s estimated the population for the Edmonton census metropolitan area (CMA) is 1,328,290.  That’s an increase of more than 42,000 people compared to the July 2013 estimate.

The statistics show that Edmonton is just behind Calgary when it comes to population growth in the country.

As for where the people are coming from, it’s being driven in part by international migration.  Alberta, specifically, is seeing strong inter-provincial migration with Edmonton and Calgary seeing the highest growth rate in Canada.

Here’s a look at how the Edmonton region population compares to other Canadian CMAs:

    The Edmonton region is now the fifth largest CMA in the country, according to the figures, after the population surpassed that of Ottawa-Gatineau, which in July 2013 held the 5th spot.

    The Statistics Canada estimates come about six months after the City of Edmonton released its census population numbers for Edmonton proper. It showed the city’s population at 877,926 as of the summer of 2014.  It’s a 60,000 person increase compared to two years ago.

    When the Edmonton census numbers were released, city officials commented about how Alberta’s capital also has one of the youngest populations in Canada.

    According to Statistics Canada, 71.3 per cent of Edmonton CMA is between the ages of 15 and 64.

    Figures also show Canada’s population now stands at 35,540,419 million people.  That’s an increase of more than 380,000 compared to July 2013.
