Immigration drives Canada’s population over 37 million

Canada’s population broke the 37 million mark in the first four months of 2018, growing by a million people in record time thanks largely to immigration, Statistics Canada reports.

New preliminary estimates from Statistics Canada put Canada’s population at 37,067,011 on April 1, 2018.

It only took two years and two months for Canada’s population to grow from 36 million to 37 million, which Statistics Canada says is the quickest increase of this size ever observed. The agency said immigration was the main source of Canada’s population growth.
