Grey wave gains momentum: New data sheds light on Basin-Boundary demographics

Grey Wave Gains Momentum

There are now more seniors than youth in the Columbia Basin-Boundary region, and our population is aging faster than the overall populations for Canada and British Columbia.

Statistics Canada recently released data from the 2016 Census on age and sex of the population. While Basin-Boundary populations are showing certain demographic trends that are common across much of the country, the data shows that there are other issues that are unique to rural places, including the many diverse communities in our region.
