Population Density Maps in Canadian Cities

I’m a big fan of maps, in particularly those displaying data. One of the best sources of data out there is the Canadian census, which I’m using here to give a view of population density in different cities. What I’ve put onto these maps is the population number divided by the area each polygon creates, which is a measurement of population density. The scales aren’t consistent between cities, so don’t compare across maps. I’ve only made maps for cities I’m somewhat familiar with, but I could make more for other cities if people are interested.
