Aerial view of the Hamlet of Langdon, 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 2021 Census of Population, Alberta had 311 designated places, an increase from 304 in 2011.[3] Designated place types in Alberta include 18 dissolved municipalities, 10 Métis settlements, and 283 unincorporated places.[4] In 2021, the 311 designated places had a cumulative population of 78,571 and an average population of 253. Alberta's largest designated place is Langdon with a population of 5,497.[4]
