I believe BC does the same thing with respect to the Lower Mainland as well.

Adding Guelph to the Kitchener CMA on the other hand has a bit less precedent.
Right, I understand the Toronto grouping, but I think the KW-Guelph grouping is still a bit of a stretch, although maybe not in the near future with the way the region is growing.
