Immigration leads to record level population growth in Canada

population growth in Canada 2019

The population growth of Canada witnessed record growth in the third quarter of 2019, driven by high immigration levels. Over the past few years, Canada has made some serious efforts to overcome the slow population growth of the country by increasing the levels of immigration. Canada has low birthrate and the population of the country is aging fast. So in order to sustain a high economic growth, it is necessary for the country to have a healthy population growth. Canada is aiming to achieve this goal by increasing the immigration levels.

As on October 1, 2019, the population of Canada was 37,797,496, which means an increase of 208,234 compared to July 1. This is for the first time in the history of the country that its population is increasing by more than 200000 in a single quarter. This can be translated into a quarterly population increase of 0.6 per cent, the largest growth rate recorded ever since Canada implemented the current demographic accounting system in July 1971. This unprecedented increase in population is mainly attributed to the increase in the number of immigrants and non-permanent residents such as temporary workers.
The number of immigrants who arrived in Canada during the third quarter of 2019 is estimated to be 103,751. Both permanent and temporary migrants accounted for 83.4 per cent of the total Canadian population growth in the third quarter. The highest growth rate was recorded in British Columbia, an increase of 0.7 per cent and the lowest growth was recorded in Newfoundland and Labrador at 0.1 per cent.

Thanks to the increased immigration levels, it is expected that the population of the country would continue to grow. However, the natural population growth rate is assumed to remain low, owing to an aging population and low birth rate.
During the third quarter of 2019, Alberta witnessed the highest interprovincial migratory increase in four years, at 2,285. Ontario too recorded a significant growth in interprovincial migration, an increase of 2959 in the third quarter of 2019. However, interprovincial migration rates recorded a decline in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. While Manitoba recorded a decrease of 3,370 in interprovincial migration, Saskatchewan lost 3477. But Quebec, where interprovincial migration losses are generally observed, lost only 200 in the third quarter.
Canada is increasingly welcoming immigrants from across the world to settle in the country. Make the most of this opportunity to build a new life for you and your family in Canada. Contact us to know more.
