Canada Achieved a Record Level Population through Immigration
The population increase in Canada observed a record growth in the Q3 of 2019, encouraged by the highest immigration levels. Over the prior few years, Canada has produced some severe attempts to overcome the slow population increase of the nation by improving the levels of immigration. Canada has a low birthrate and the population of the nation is aging fast. So to maintain a high economic development, it is essential for the nation to have a healthy population increase. Canada is striving to reach this goal by increasing the levels of immigration.

As of 1 Oct 2019, the Canadian population was 37,797,496, which means an improvement of 208,234 related to 1 July. It is for the initial time in the country history that its population is rising by greater than 200000 in a particular quarter.

It can be turned into a quarterly population growth of 0.6%, which is the biggest growth rate recorded since Canada implementing the popular demographic accounting system in 1971 July. This unusual growth in population is principally attributed to the rise in the number of newcomers & non-permanent residents like Canadian temporary workers.

Statistics of Canadian Immigrants in Q3 of 2019

The number of newcomers who landed in Canada during the 3rd quarter of 2019 is calculated to be 103,751. Both temporary and permanent migrants considered for 83.4% in the entire Canadian population increase in the 3rd quarter of 2019. The most significant growth rate was recorded in the province of British Columbia, a 0.7% increase and the weakest growth was recorded in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador a 0.1% increase was observed.

Thanks to the progressed levels of immigration, it is assumed that the population of the nation would proceed to grow. However, the actual population increase rate is expected to continue low, owing to the aging population and also a low birth rate.

During the Q3 of 2019, Alberta province saw the most significant interprovincial migratory gain in the four years, at 2,285. The province of Ontario too recorded a significant interprovincial migratory gain, an increase of 2959 in the Q3 of 2019. However, the rates of interprovincial migration recorded a drop in the provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. While Manitoba province also recorded a drop of 3,370 in interprovincial migrants, Saskatchewan province recorded a drop of 3,477. In the province of Quebec, where interprovincial migration drops are usually observed but recorded a drop of only 200 in the Q3 of 2019.
