    interesting population stats on BC v Ottawa … wonder where our ‘lost’ residents went ?

    the language stats could be broken down a bit more too
    there’s a big difference between say ‘english only’ and ‘english and other’ yet they’re clumped together …. interesting that after all these years of pushing for bilingualism – it’s not showing in these stats

    Ottawa’s population is well over 900,000 now – not sure if BC has changed.

    – Our population went DOWN between 2006 and 2011.

    demographics

    the language stats only has 8980 residents … again meant to be 2011 census ,,, there are a lot who don’t speak ! same goes for the greater ottawa area

    – You’re right – the chart says that the 2011 Bells Corners population was 8,980 when the census says it was 9,468. It also also gives an old number for the population of Ottawa – 871,455 instead of 883,391.

    The most popular “other” languages are listed as Arabic, Vietnamese. Spanish, Chinese n.o.s.* Sounds about right for Bells Corners – Arabic is the third most common language in Ottawa after English and French.

    *”Chinese, n.o.s.” is comprised of persons who answered “Chinese” to the question on mother tongue in the census, without any other specification. These may, therefore, include persons with Mandarin, Cantonese or any other Chinese language as their mother tongue.
