Edmonton’s 2014 Census Confirms Strong Population Growth Edmonton’s population has grown by more than 60,000 over the past two years to a total of 877,926, according to the municipal census conducted this spring. "Edmonton’s population growth indicates that we are a city of opportunity," says Mayor Don Iveson.

The City of Edmonton has been preparing for a growing population with major infrastructure investments.
