Stats, Canada

You may have noticed that the results of the Census 2006 were officially released today. If you plan to dive in the numbers yourself: The Flash version at CBC’s is god-awful: for a good overview, you may just as well head over to the Stats. Canada site (PDF version).

Remarkable findings:

  • The current Canadian population stands at 31,612,897
  • The rate of Canadians born is lower than the rate of immigrants moving over here.
  • Ontario took half of Canada’s growth (the sum of the two factors above).
  • Canada’s population is getting more urban.
  • Alberta has the highest growth rate.
