Census Metropolitan Area and Census Agglomeration Influenced Zones (MIZ)

Boundaries of census metropolitan area and census agglomeration influenced zones (MIZ) in the Saskatoon Health Region.

Census subdivisions (CSDs) are assigned to a MIZ category based on the percentage of their resident employed labour force that has a place of work in the urban core(s) of CMAs or CAs. CSDs with the same degree of influence tend to be clustered. They form zones around CMAs and CAs that progress through the categories from strong to no influence as distance from the CMAs and CAs increases.

Categories include:

  • Strong MIZ: at least 30% of the municipalitys resident employed labour force commute to work in any CMA or CA.
  • Moderate MIZ: at least 5%, but less than 30% of the municipalitys resident employed labour force commute to work in any CMA or CA.
  • Weak MIZ: more than 0%, but less than 5% of the municipalitys resident employed labour force commute to work in any CMA or CA.
  • No MIZ: fewer than 40 or none of the municipalitys resident employed labour force commute to work in any CMA or CA.
