Lethbridge isn’t the only community growing in southern Alberta.

The Town of Coaldale says its population has increased by 5.5% over the last three years.

As of June 30th, there were 8,691 people living there which is 476 more than the Federal Census counted in 2016.

A full debrief of census results are expected to be provided to Coaldale Town Council at its September 9th meeting.
