More Canadians

 Canada had an increase of more than 1 million citizens in 2022, bringing its population to more than 39.5 million. 

The 2.7-percent increase was the highest since 1957 with international migration accounting for nearly 96 percent of the growth.

Statistics Canada said that “high job vacancies and labour shortages” have fuelled the high rate of immigration. It also noted Canada’s ageing population, with one in seven residents between the ages of 55 and 64, providing opportunity to welcome more people.
