Population !

Canada's Population Is 35.2 Million Right Now.

In 2060 Canada's Population Will Be At least Be 50.2 Million.

  • Canada's population has been increasing slowly.
  • In the next 45 years Canada's population will slowly increase by few millions.
  • Birth rate will drop in Canada.
  • Immigration Might be the only effective source of increase in Canada 2060.

Birth Rate / Death Rate

*Canada's current birth rate is 10.28

* Canada's current death rate is 7.87

* In 2060 both rates will decrease with a very high rate.

Natural increase was once the major factor of population growth in the 19th century, because birth rate was very high back then. Children were inexpensive and parents needed lots of children to work on farms. Fertility rate was high back then. A significant rise in fertility due to the post-war baby boomers.

death rates were also as high in the early decades because of the lack in medical health, less education and climate.

Right now birth rate has been very low because people don't bring many children for many reasons for example people right now are more educated, developed jobs right now (no children working in farms) and children are becoming more expensive right now. people right and in the future are not expecting too many children and they don't need any.

Death rates has decreased that's because of the improved health care and food availability and no weather issues .


Many people come to Canada to look for good opportunities.

Canada has many pull factors which will make it easy to attract people to immigrate to it.

natural increase has been dropping through the years.

In the mean time Canada’s immigration flow per year is probably one of the highest among OECD ( Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) members, at 0.7% per cent of its population.

Canada will need many immigrants to make up for a the low birth rate.

In 2060 Canada's annual immigration flow is going to reach 2% or more of its population.


* Immigration makes most of the labour force in Canada, which is the one that creates new households, buys new houses, has children and pays the greater part of taxation revenue.

* With no immigration Canada's population will drop with a very high rate.

* Most of Canada's immigrants are Economic workers who will contribute to Canada's Economy.
