2006 Census Population Statistics
The 2008 Electoral Division Boundaries Commission was required to base its 2008 review
of the boundaries on the population for Manitoba. The total population was divided by
the number of electoral divisions in the province (57 divisions), establishing a
quotient for each division.
Where the commission was of the opinion that a population variation was desirable,
the commission was permitted to vary electoral division populations by:
- 10% above or below the quotient for divisions south of the 53rd parallel and
- 25% above or below the quotient for divisions wholly or partially north of the 53rd
The permitted variation was the same as was in place for the 1998 boundaries commission.
2006 Total Population for Manitoba: 1,148,401
Quotient per Electoral Division for Manitoba: 20,147
Deviation of ± 10% range of: 18,133 to 22,162
Deviation of ± 25% range of: 15,111 to 25,184
