Dissemination Area Reference Maps, by Census Tracts, for Census Metropolitan Areas and Census Agglomerations

The Dissemination Areas Reference Maps, by Census Tracts, for Census Metropolitan Area and Census Agglomeration, cover all 33 census metropolitan areas and the 15 census agglomerations that are part of the Census Tract Program. Each map in the series covers one census tract and displays the boundaries and codes of dissemination areas within that tracted area. There are 5,269 maps and inset maps were created to show detail for the more concentrated areas.

The maps display census tract, census subdivision, and census metropolitan area or census agglomeration boundaries with street network and other visible features such as railroads, rivers and lakes. The dimensions of each map are 27 cm by 43 cm (11 inches by 17 inches). Map scales vary according to the size of the census tract; thus the maps cannot be cut and pasted together.

Dissemination area reference maps are also available for non-tracted census agglomerations (92-148-UIB), and by census subdivision for areas outside census metropolitan areas and census agglomerations (92-145-UIB). Together, the three sets of dissemination area maps cover all of Canada.

A reference guide is available (92-145-GWE).

Reference maps are available free on the Internet (www.statcan.gc.ca), or they can be purchased through the enquiries line in electronic format (PDF on CD-ROM) or paper format, please contact us.
