Tiny’s Population Is Growing Much Faster – And Getting Older Too.
By John Grant
The 2006 Census has revealed that the permanent population of the Township increased from 9,035 to 10,785 between 2001 and 2006, an increase of 19.3%. In contrast, it had grown only 4.6% during the previous five years. Most of the increase was due to a massive surge in individuals aged 45 years or older, and especially in the 55-64 age group. The median age of Tiny’s permanent population rose to 46.9 years; it had been 43.6 years in 2001. (The provincial median age rose as well, but much less, from 36.4 to 39.0 years.)
In 2006, Tiny’s permanent population occupied 4,337 dwellings out of a total of 9,072, so seasonal residents still account for more than half of the dwellings in the township.
