Results are in for the 2018 census.
There are now 26,328 people in Fort Saskatchewan, up 3.11 per cent from last year.
Census data shows that most people in the city live in single detached or semi-detached homes or row housing. New construction was most common in Southfort and Westpark.
All 11,179 properties in the city were included in the census, with half of participants completing the census online.
“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.
