98% of Canada’s annual population growth came from international migration
Despite historic low birth rates, Canada’s population growth rate over those twelve months was an unprecedented 2.9% — a rate that’s higher than most African countries.

Of course, whereas most African nations are known for high fertility, Canada’s boom can be attributed to “a high number of immigrants (468,817) and an increase in the number of non-permanent residents (+697,701),” StatsCan reported.

Canada’s population is now estimated to be over 40 million.
