Supplement no. 3

July 14, 2010 (Previous notice)

Supplement no. 3 to the Standard Geographical Classification 2006 is issued by Standards Division to inform users of a change of name of the census metropolitan area (CMA) of Kitchener.

Effective July 14, 2010, the name of the CMA of "Kitchener" becomes "Kitchener–Cambridge–Waterloo".

Divisions in Statistics Canada releasing data for that CMA are expected to use the new name at the earliest opportunity.

Data dissemination guidelines

Effective July 14, 2010, "Kitchener–Cambridge–Waterloo" is the official name of the CMA of Kitchener in the Standard Geographical Classification (SGC) 2006.

The following applies to data released in print, through CANSIM or electronically.

For non-Census products and programs, the new CMA name should be implemented at the earliest opportunity in any new release, regardless of the reference period of the data.

For the 2006 Census products, the former name will be maintained but a footnote should be added in any new release in The Daily text, or in any analytical text indicating the name change.
