Non-Permanent Population

Municipalities are authorized only to count permanent residents during a census. However, the Town of Canmore does attempt to make an unofficial count of people who reside in Canmore occasionally but whose primary residence is elsewhere. We refer to our occasional residents as our "non-permanent population."

According to the most recent municipal census, as of May 20, 2014, Canmore's non-permanent population was estimated at 3,890.
