If you are looking for a date or a partner in life, maybe you should move to Collingwood.  O.K., I’ll concede that most people looking for a community to relocate to don’t consider marital statistics when they shop for real estate but none-the-less, this is kind of interesting stuff.

According to an article in last Friday’s Collingwood Connection newspaper, Collingwood is the singles capital of our region. The article reported on Census data found in the now released 2006 Stats Can Community Profiles but to be fair, the data doesn’t yet cover some of the towns in our area.  I suspect thought that their conclusion will still be correct.

The profile for Collingwood reveals that it is the most heavily populated town in the Georgian Triangle with a population of 17,290 people; an increase of 7.8 percent over the 2001 numbers.  Of these, 14,585 are over the age of fifteen and the median age is 44.4 years.  For the first time, unmarried people outnumber married people.  Of those over the age of fifteen, 52% are single (including those who have never married, are separated, divorced or widowed) while 48% are married.  In Ontario, the reverse is true with 52% married and 48% single.

In the Town of the Blue Mountains,  the median age is 50.6 years, compared to the provincial average of 39 years of age and, 42% of its citizens are singles versus 58% married.

In Clearview,  the numbers are almost exactly the same although the average age is just 41.2 years.
