  • First Look at the 2016 Census: Dr. Doug Norris Discusses New Population and Household Data


    Canada’s national Census happens only once every five years, and on February 8th, Statistics Canada will release the first results from the 2016 tally, covering population and household counts and growth patterns for all geographic areas. What will the new numbers portend for marketers? Will market share estimates, trade areas and sales targets need to be significantly recalibrated? In the first of a multi-part series of Census webinars scheduled throughout the year, demographic expert Dr. Doug Norris will discuss how organizations can use the census statistics to better understand their changing markets, adjust their marketing and improve their bottom lines. 

    Doug Norris will share insights on 
    • The varying population growth rates of major markets and provinces, noting which areas grew, which declined and which underwent significant change. 
    • The underlying trends in births, deaths and migration that affect population growth.
    • How the latest population and household data can help businesses, not-for-profits and government agencies connect with their markets and audiences more effectively and efficiently.
