Weird. Brampton, Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington are treated as part of Toronto and Hamilton but Kanata is separate from Ottawa.

Yes, I'm not sure why. Google maps shows that both are disconnected from the respective cities, despite basically being suburbs. They are also in different regional municipalities compared to Ottawa and the rest of the GTA. Niche guesses aside, I kept my source because I couldn't find any better source elsewhere.

Been getting a lot of comments about cities either being here or not being here. I am going off of population centres, which is what our government uses instead of urban area. According to Wikipedia: Population centre, in Canadian census data, is a type of census division which meets the demographic characteristics of an urban area, having a population of at least 1,000 people and a population density of no fewer than 400 persons per square km2. Note that the population of a "population centre" is not the same thing as the population of a municipality; the population centre can include areas outside the municipal boundaries which are directly contiguous with the municipality's urban area, and can exclude areas inside the municipal boundaries which are less densely urbanized.

Mississauga is discounted due to it being included in Toronto. Meanwhile Kanata and Milton are seperated from Ottawa and Toronto, respectively, by fields.
