Downtown main street of the Hamlet of Lac La Biche, Alberta's most populous designated place

A designated place is a type of geographic unit used by Statistics Canada to disseminate census data.[1] It is usually "a small community that does not meet the criteria used to define incorporated municipalities or Statistics Canada population centres (areas with a population of at least 1,000 and no fewer than 400 persons per square kilometre)."[2] Provincial and territorial authorities collaborate with Statistics Canada in the creation of designated places so that data can be published for sub-areas within municipalities.[2] Starting in 2016, Statistics Canada allowed the overlapping of designated places with population centres.[2]

At the 2016 Census of Population, Alberta had 304 designated places,[3] an increase from 264 in 2011.[4] Designated place types in Alberta include 10 dissolved municipalities, 10 Métis settlements, and 284 unincorporated places.[5] In 2016, the 304 designated places had a cumulative population of 56,070 and an average population of 184. Alberta's largest designated place is Lac La Biche with a population of 2,314.[5]
