This revised and updated version of a 2013 book is a useful compendium of statistical (mostly) data on the 50 most-populous cities in Canada. Its effective functionality lies in its straightforward presentation of rankings collected from Statistics Canada. Rankings are grouped into general categories—demographics, housing, income, education, transportation—that also encompass many subcategories, such as marital status, size of household, mode of transportation, ethnic or cultural origin, religion, and immigration status. City profiles are also a highlight in this book. Gleaned from local sources, such as tourist bureaus and community organizations, these entries offer a narrative overview of every city’s history and quality of life, along with highlights of the surrounding area. Numerical data sources are listed below each table, and bibliographies contain citations about the narrative information.
VERDICT Recommended for readers wanting to review reliable data of Canadian cities in an easy-to-use format. It’s a great selection for students and researchers of all levels, general readers, and business owners who are considering new locations.
