The reason for population growth was Immigration at 83 percent share in the first quarter in Canada, and 17 per cent owing to the natural increase.
The trend of the reduction in the natural increase
The trend of the reduction in share of the natural increase will continue, as per the report. In this background, the growth in population in Canada will rely more and more on international migration alone. Another notable fact is that the seasonal factors connected with births/deaths, are naturally lower during the first quarter. Canada never had so many deaths in a single quarter. Compounding it is that, generally there are fewer births in the first quarter of the year.
The contribution of immigration is huge in the population growth, but Canada received 65,959 permanent immigrants that is its lowest number for the initial quarter since 2015. Statistics also reveal that the increase of 31,547 non-permanent residents in the initial quarter was an important factor in population growth.
