Locally, the townships of North Dumfries, Woolwich and Wilmot recorded the highest growth rates since 2011, all exceeding 6.8 per cent.

Although Kelowna remains one of the fastest growing cities in the country, its rate of growth has declined since 2011, according to the 2016 census report released by Statistics Canada Wednesday.

While the 2016 age distribution data is yet to be released, Ramlos said the declining employment in rural regions push out mid-career workers, while increased jobs and education opportunities in the metropolitan areas pull in younger workers.

Kingston's growth was marginal at just one per cent.

Woodstock's population grew at the same rate as Guelph's, with the result being a total of 40,902 residents. New Brunswick is the only province that has seen a decline in its population, at a rate of -0.5 percent.

But he's not upset, he said, crediting an economy that remained strong compared to many other areas of the province and country.

The three biggest metropolitan areas in the country - Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver - are now home to more than one-third of all Canadians with a combined population of 12.5 million, with nearly one half living in Toronto and its suburban neighbours, the data shows.

Worth pointing out is the fact that Manitoba's population increased a healthy 5.8 percent, and most of that was due to strong worldwide migration.
