YOU TALK A LOT OF INWARD MIGRATION. WHEN WILL IT START AGAIN?
Interesting and timely question. Canadian population growth beat expectations in the early months of 2021, with strengthening international migration driving the rebound. “First quarter data from Statistics Canada showed that the country’s population grew by 82,000, a rate that RBC Senior Economist Andrew Agopsowicz said was the fastest quarterly increase since the beginning of the pandemic.” If continued it would go to 368,000 – fairly close to the Federal Govt target of 400,000 and much faster!
