One-year growth rate of 6.9 per cent is 

third-highest in city’s history

    Preliminary results from the City of Leduc’s latest municipal census indicate a one-year growth rate of 6.9 per cent or 1,759 new citizens. Leduc’s growth rate, the third-highest in the city’s history, exceeds its five-year average annual growth rate of 5.8 per cent.

    “Leduc’s unrelenting growth is due to our advantageous location, competitive housing prices and excellent quality of life,” says Leduc Mayor Greg Krischke. “Based on our city’s remarkable growth in recent years, as well as our building permit trends, it would be a safe bet that Leduc will surpass 30,000 citizens in the next two years.”

    Other early findings from the City of Leduc’s 2013 municipal census include:

    • About 70 per cent of Leduc workers are employed locally; only 20 per cent commute to Edmonton for employment;

    • There are 577 more occupied dwellings in Leduc since 2012, an increase of 5.9 percent;

    • About 25.6 per cent of Leduc residents completed their home census online; this is the second consecutive year that Leduc residents have been offered an online enumeration option.

    More insights from the City of Leduc’s 2013 municipal census will be released when the final report is brought to Leduc City Council this fall. The final census report will then be sent to Alberta Municipal Affairs. This is the fifth-consecutive year that the City of Leduc has conducted a municipal census.

    Leduc is a city of 27,000 adjacent to Edmonton International Airport and 15 minutes from Edmonton. Leduc was Canada’s ninth-fastest growing municipality and second-fastest growing city over the last five-year federal census period (2006-2011). Leduc has grown more than 74 per cent from 2003 to 2013. Visit Leduc.ca for more information.
