Most communities in Canada (such as Conestogo, Ontario) are currently classified as AREA rather than Populated place (PPL). Is it possible to update them all in batch to PPL since they are well-delimited places with known population?

you are right. There are some area features that are more populated places. I have run an update to update those and also the coordinates with the newest values from geobase.ca

Thanks, the update fixed a good amount of them.
There are still some places wrongly classified as AREA but it's much better.
