Supporting candidates like you with local election demographics

example of map for candidatesIn order to support candidates running in the Alberta election, RCC has created a series of maps using Stats Canada census data. You can download a sample map here.

These maps can be useful when trying to understand demographic specifics for your local riding. For example, if you are planning to send constituents a piece of literature on childcare, these maps can help you identify sections of your riding with high percentages of young families.

Note: These maps work best when printed in 36″ x 48″ format (same size as standard Election Alberta wall maps) and can be printed at any print or copy center.
