COCHRANE’S POPULATION NEARING 28,000

Spotlight-01-01

Cochrane’s census numbers are in: the 2018 population is 27,960.
The Town has grown 5.9% since the 2017 census and 11% since 2016.
Many provincial government grants are awarded on a per capita basis — a precise census count ensures the Town receives the maximum funding the community is entitled to.
Cochrane’s census was held between April 3 and 30. Over 97% of residents participated in the annual population count, more than half completing the form online.
The results are submitted to Alberta Municipal Affairs; the new population figure should be declared official by the province in September.
