StatCan Census Data for Cardiff ...

Although we found mention of Cardiff during our research, we really don't have any information about it.<1> Over time, we expect to discover additional information that will be added to our Gazetteer..

As far as we can tell, Cardiff has not been included in past StatCan census counts, so there is no population information for this community.

    <1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Cardiff and then turned east". While Cardiff could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Cardiff as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

    Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Mile's to see Pete ... Mile's is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

    Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

    Also keep in mind that Cardiff could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong . Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.

    Since confusion between is common, we searched and weren't able to find another Alberta community named Cardiff.
    <2>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Cardiff were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.
    <3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Cardiff) to Point B.

    If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Cardiff. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Cardiff

    Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Cardiff. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 53.7833, Longitude: -113.6000
