Caledonia Census Agglomeration (Spring 2010 population 23,091) is a census agglomeration in western Gravenhurst Region. The census agglomeration (CA) covers four municipalities, often referred as the Greater Caledonia Area. These four municipalities are Arithmetic, Caithness - Caledonia, Dever - Dovercourt, and Eugene - Euridice. The population of this area is estimated to be about 23,000 in March 2010 (the recent census suggests 23,091 residents reside in the CA), up from 12,000 in October 2009.
It is noted that overwhelmingly, about 93% of the CA's population originates from Caithness - Caledonia, the heart of the CA.
The Caledonia Census Agglomeration is centred around the Escarpment River Valley, and is home to much of the dirty industry and agricultural industry of the region. As more dirty industry companies begin to set foot in the region during these few years, more workers and residents moved in. The number of jobs for the census agglomeration is currently estimated at 5,400. The number is expected to triple in two years, reaching 16,200 by 2011. As a result, the population of the region is also expected to increase to 40,000 by 2011.
The major highway in the area is the Alphabet County Thruway. In 2008, the government of Gravenhurst announced to build an expressway, linking Caledonia to Sussex. The construction of this highway, Highway 509, is well underway, and is expected to be completed by mid-2010.
The region also features at-grade highway, like Hiryiam Highway.
As of the 2009 defined boundaries of the CMA, there are a total of five member municipalities.
