“The City of Fort Saskatchewan has become a community of choice thanks to our high quality of life and our small town feel with big city state-of-the-art amenities,” said mayor Gale Katchur. “I am pleased to see our growth trend is continuing and that more people are choosing to call Fort Saskatchewan home.”
The city uses census data in budgeting and applying for government funding.
A final version of the report will be released in August.
