Population / Demographic Statistics

Kelowna’s population at the time of the May 2011 Census was 117,312. All of the 2011 Census data will be released over the next year and when complete a 2011 Census Summary will be prepared. Detailed population and demographic information based on the 2006 census is available from the Policy & Planning Department, Census Data or BC Stats.

Population and demographic statistics are vital in planning for the future; they help identify the makeup of a community and assist in making predictions for the community’s future needs. The principle source of information is Statistics Canada, which performs a national Census every five years. BC Stats estimates the population of communities in the province between each Census.
