According to last year’s estimate, the population of Canada was 4 crore 1 lakh.

Immigrants could increase Canada’s population by more than half in the next 50 years. Statistics Canada’s report released last Monday revealed such information.

According to last year’s estimate, the population of Canada was 4 crore 1 lakh. It is estimated that the country’s population will be 62.8 million in 2073. Which is 57 percent more than last year.

According to Statistics Canada, the annual population growth rate will be 0.9 percent. which the agency took as average population growth.

Statistics Canada also calculates average high and low population growth rates. In this case, if the average growth rate is 1.6 percent, the population will be 8 crore 72 lakh.

And if the average growth rate is 0.3 percent, the population will be 4 crore 1 lakh. However, the country’s population growth rate in the last three decades was 1.1 percent.

On the one hand, even if population growth is assumed, by 2036, Canada will have more deaths than births. In this case, immigrants will be the main factor behind population growth.

Canada is currently home to a large number of expat students and temporary workers. Due to this, the population of the country has recently increased due to the pressure of temporary residents.

However, the Canadian government is making some changes in the immigration policy as a result of the continuous infrastructural complications and housing crisis. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has set a target of reducing the number of temporary residents by 20 percent over the next three years.

There are currently 2.8 million temporary residents in Canada. Which is 830 thousand more than last year.

However, according to the agency’s calculations, between this year and 2027, the country will decrease by 640,000 temporary residents. This will reduce the country’s population growth rate to 0.7 percent. Which was 3.2 percent last year as well.
