The community of Stoney Creek Ontario is composed of over 60 thousand people. In the year 2006, the census of the community was at 62,292. Now that it has been a few years from 2006, the population may have increased for approximately 5 percent. Stoney Creek is a part of the city of Hamilton.
But in the past, Stoney Creek was actually named an independent municipality in the year 1984. In the early 1970’s, there was a boom in the residential growth of the city which spread to the lower portion of the community to the west mountain. It was only in the year 2001 that Stoney Creek City was merged by the provincial government with other communities such as Hamilton, Dundas, Ancaster, Glanbrook, and Flamborough to form the new city of Hamilton which is what is known today.
During the merging of these communities into a larger city of Hamilton, the old City Hall of Stoney Creek was turned into the Public Library of Stoney Creek. Majority of the people living in the Stoney Creek community is white and most of them have European ancestry. It was also noted that one fourth of the population of the community was born outside of the area.
