The Market Area is outlined in Green on the following map. North Saanich and Sidney were not included as the travelling distance was 26.7 kilometres to Victoria versus 14 kilometres from Langford to Victoria.

The scenic Victoria Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) includes thirteen municipalities with the majority of the population centred in Victoria and Saanich but this is changing.
Examining the "Growth Areas", the Westshore's population grew the fastest at 20 percent and along with Sooke, the shift in population growth away from the Central Core is dramatically changing the dynamics of the Capital Region.
Langford's population grew by 33 percent from 2006 to 2012 and is forecast by the Capital Regional District's Planning Services to reach 42,100 people by 2026, making Langford the fastest growing municipality in the Capital Region.
