Ward Profiles, 2014-2018 Wards

The 2016 and 2011 Ward Profiles (2014-2018 Wards) and Community Council Area Profiles are available from City Planning through the online Toronto Data, Research & Maps portal. These workbooks contain the data in these Profiles. These Profiles provide demographic, social and economic information for each Ward in the City of Toronto.

Each Ward Profile and Community Council Area Profile provides a portrait of the population and households in each Ward and Community Council Area. The 2016 Ward Profiles contain information on population by age; households and dwelling types; families; language group; household tenure and period of construction; immigration and mobility; ethnic origin and visible minorities; education and labour force; income and shelter cost.

In 2011, there were changes in the way information was collected for the 2011 Census. The information previously collected by the Census long form was collected as part of the voluntary National Household Survey (NHS) by Statistics Canada. As a result, older 2011 Ward Profiles contain similar demographic information as the 2016 Ward Profiles, except that the information is in two different Profile documents for each Ward. The 2011 Census Profiles contain information from the Census short form on population by age, households and dwelling types, families, and language groups. The 2011 National Household Survey Profiles contain information on household tenure and period of construction; immigration and mobility; ethnic origin and visible minorities; education and labour force; income and shelter costs.

In 2016, Statistics Canada restored the mandatory long-form Census. These changes make it difficult to compare 2011 and 2016 Census year data. In general, the 2011 NHS data is less comparable to that of all Censuses prior to 2011, and the 2016 Census. The results of the long-form Census are considered to be more reliable than those the 2011 National Household Survey.

For more information, please see the Census Glossary and Notes, and the National Household Survey Glossary in the Ward Profile portal. Information on the availability of Census of Canada can be obtained from Statistics Canada, www.statcan.ca, or its toll-free access number 1-800-263-1136.

Data will be reviewed and updated about two years after Census Day 2021, depending on the release of data by Statistics Canada and City requests for custom tabulations.
