  1. 1. Canada’s Changing Population
  2. 2. Table 1: This is a table of population in thousands of people for each province from 2007 to 2011. 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011Canada 32,929.70 33,319.10 33,729.70 34,126.20 34,482.80Newfoundland andLabrador 506.4 506.4 508.9 511.3 510.6Prince EdwardIsland 138.2 139.6 141.2 143.4 145.9Nova Scotia 935.8 937.2 940.3 944.8 945.4New Brunswick 745.5 747 750 752.8 755.5Quebec 7,687.40 7,750.70 7,826.90 7,905.70 7,979.70Ontario 12,792.90 12,934.50 13,072.70 13,227.80 13,373.00Manitoba 1,193.60 1,205.50 1,219.20 1,234.50 1,250.60Saskatchewan 1,000.30 1,013.90 1,029.30 1,044.00 1,057.90Alberta 3,512.70 3,591.80 3,671.70 3,720.90 3,779.40British Columbia 4,309.60 4,384.00 4,459.90 4,529.70 4,573.30Yukon 32.6 33.1 33.7 34.6 34.7NorthwestTerritories 43.5 43.7 43.6 43.8 43.7Nunavut 31.3 31.6 32.2 32.8 33.3

There seems to be atrend where the larger, more urbanised provinces are increasing in population faster. I have not doneanalysis to illustrate how these numbers are related to percentage of the population.There are a number of factors involved, probably the most important of which is the availability ofemployment. Though this analysis disregards the importance of other family members, and supportfrom other people in the area; we need to consider the immigrant population as the major source ofpopulation growth. Births and deaths in Canada do not account for much growth as our agingpopulation, and small family sizes do not cause the population explosions that developing countriesexperience.
