Stats, Facts and Interesting Data From The 2021 Census
I love stats as much as the next guy, what I don't love is reading long winded articles. As many of us like to say, get to the point. So, here's a few short and sweet points.
- According to the 2021 census, Canada’s population grew at almost twice the rate of every other G7 country from 2016 to 2021
- About 80% of the country’s population growth over the past five years has resulted from newcomers and the other 20% from natural increase.
- In Canada’s three largest urban centres, the distant suburbs grew at a faster pace than the urban fringe and suburbs situated closer to downtown.
- Suburbs located farthest from downtowns grew at the fastest pace—8.8% over five years.
