Canadian Population Hits 35 Million With Credit To Immigration

The population of Canada surpassed 35 million sometime in October, with Canada having the highest population growth rate among the G8 countries at an average of one per cent every year for the last decade. Immigration Population Increase

Immigration in Canada is credited with about two-thirds of the population growth, with natural population growth making up the other third.

By 2036, the population in Canada is expected to reach between 40.1 million and 47.7 million with Ontario and British Columbia experiencing the highest population growth among the provinces.

According to Global News Toronto, a larger population can benefit everyone because it’s less expensive to run a large society than a small one – more people are using the services available to them while the services will be available no matter who uses them.

However, the provinces and federal government will need to determine how to overcome one of the biggest problems that can arise with a larger population: ineffective mass transit.

Newfoundland has the lowest level of population growth in Canada, even having negative population growth as it attracts few immigrants and its own native population relocates elsewhere in the country.
