As of 1 October 2023, StatsCan estimates the country’s population as 40,528,396 and growing at a phenomenal rate. The quarterly increase of 430,635 people (+1.1%) was the highest population growth rate in any quarter since the second quarter of 1957.
Since forever, we’ve been thinking of Canada’s population as one-tenth that of the US — one Canadian for every ten in the US. Now it’s one for every 8.5.
