Immigration fuels Canada highest population growth since 1957

According to Statistics Canada, Canada’s population has soared, reaching an estimated 40,528,396, a figure which includes citizens and residents, on October 1st, 2023.

The surge reflects an increase of 430,635 people, marking a notable growth rate of 1.1% since July 1st, 2023. This increase represents the highest population growth in any quarter since the second quarter of 1957, when Canada’s population expanded by 1.2%. At the time, Canada’s population was only 16.7 million and growth was fuelled by post-war baby boom births and an influx of refugees following the Hungarian Revolution of 1956.

The population growth for the first nine months of 2023 has been the largest recorded, totalling 1,030,378 people. This includes the record-high growth witnessed in 2022.
