Immigration pushed Canada’s population to more than 40.5-million people by the start of October.
Statistics Canada reports the country added more than430-thousand residents during the third quarter, which was the fastest pace of population growth in any quarter since 1957.
Most of the non-permanent residents who arrived in the country were work and study permit-holders, while others were refugee claimants. It’s the fastest pace of population growth in any quarter since 1957.
Statistics Canada reports the record-high growth is being driven by migration, and that an increase in non-permanent residents coming to Canada to work and study is mostly responsible.
