City of Leduc pleased to welcome 584 new residents in 2019

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Leduc Census 2019 reported an increase in population of 1.8 per cent, bringing the city’s population to 33,032 residents.

“Leduc remains a safe, attractive community in the greater Edmonton region. Not only do we have 35 neighbourhoods to choose from, but also a very competitive business community that welcomes new and innovative companies,” says Leduc Mayor Bob Young. “We are a city with a plan for the future.”

The City of Leduc has conducted an annual municipal census since 2008 to ensure the city receives provincial funding proportionate with Leduc’s fast growing population. Leduc relies on provincial funding to help offset the costs of many important services, including infrastructure improvements and maintenance, the public library, Family & Community Support Services, and the RCMP. The benefits of census data also reach far beyond meeting the current and future needs of the city. The data meets the planning requirements for businesses, funding requirements for communities and advises individuals on locations to live, work and play.

Leduc continues to offer two options to participate, door-to-door and online; 2019’s online participation was an all time high of 51.6 per cent!
