Topic: List of the 100 largest metropolitan areas in Canada


  
  Metropolitan area information - Search.com
A metropolitan area is a large population center consisting of a large city and its adjacent zone of influence, or of several neighboring cities or towns and adjoining areas, with one or more large cities serving as its hub or hubs.
A metropolitan area usually combines an agglomeration (the contiguous built-up area) with peripheral zones not themselves necessarily urban in character, but closely bound to the centre by employment or commerce; these zones are also sometimes known as a commuter belt, and may extend well beyond the urban periphery depending on the definition used.
The term metropolitan area is sometimes abbreviated to 'metro', for example in Metro Manila and Washington, DC Metro Area, and in that case should not be mistaken to mean the metro rail system of the city.

Rather than limit deployment to a list that is not reflective of the current and ever-changing population and competitive landscape, we conclude that new entrants on the top 100 MSA list should be included.
We decline, however, to delete any areas that may subsequently fall off the list; we believe that those areas will, in most instances, continue to be heavily populated and competitive and, thus, should continue to be targeted for LNP and pooling.
As new areas are added to the list of the top 100 MSAs, carriers will be given a six month period after release of the updated list to comply with LNP and pooling capability requirements.
