Ottawa’s Population Reaches One Million-Weeks End

Mayor Jim Watson announced this morning that Ottawa’s population will join the one million club on Friday

While saying “it’s symbolic in some respects”, Mayor Watson also said “it also brings us into the league of cities like Toronto and Calgary that are over a million people, and I think it’s a feather in our cap,”

He said the city chose Friday based on information from Statistics Canada.

It’s estimated the city’s population will grow by 28 that day alone, so it’s not known who, exactly, will become the city’s one millionth resident.
