Community Trends Report
The 2016 Community Trends Report examines the current trends from four key areas: our people, our homes, our economy and our environment. Examining demographic and social data, the trends depicted in this report illustrate Kelowna's successes, as well as existing and future challenges facing the city. By monitoring these trends, the we will be well positioned in future years to proactively address emerging issues and dedicate its human, financial and technological resources to key programs, policy initiatives and services.
The positive momentum from 2014 carried over to 2015 as the Kelowna Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) became the fastest growing region in Canada. The population growth was largely driven by migration from other parts of Canada including the lower mainland and the Alberta. As the region has grown, the housing and economic sectors have also experienced growth and expansion.
Each quarter, we report out on key activities at a regular Council meeting. Topics include projects, active living and culture, public engagement and more.
- Quarter four - October through December, 2016
- Quarter three - July through September, 2016
- Quarter two - April through June, 2016
