Cities do not have to be among the largest in a nation to be important. The city of Southampton is one of the smallest cities in Ontario, but the personality of the city along with its proximity to the ocean makes it one of the most popular travel destinations in the region. The city attracts many tourists annually, but some of those tourists have obviously liked it enough to stay, as the city grows each year.

Demographics

The city of Southampton in Ontario has a population of 3,678 as of the 2016 census. The previous census showed the population at 3,382, so the growth between that time was 8.8% of the total population. That is almost double the growth rate of the rest of Ontario (4.6%) for the same period. The population density of Southampton is another draw to the city as it is only 571.3 people for every kilometer. The total land within the city is 6.33 kilometer.
