Crunching Numbers in Canada Posted April 25, 2008 Cache Density By Area (Best chance at finding a cache) 1 Prince Edward Island PEI has less than 500 caches in 5,683 square kilometers. In just 1,400 sq.km of Toronto (the main part) there are almost 600 caches which is about 400% more dense. If you take everything in Ontario from 44°40' south you would have over 6,000 caches in around 85,000 sq.km which is approximately the same density as PEI, but in an area 5 times the size. So, my conclusions are: 1. You have a better chance of finding a cache in southern Ontario than PEI 2. PEI is really really small. 3. I'd love to go caching in PEI. Umm now is that really a fair comparison when: Greater Toronto Area had a population of 5,555,912 in the 2006 Census. The entire Province of PEI had a population of 135,851 in the 2006 census. Remembering of course it takes people to place them in the empty space.
