Life expectancy in Canada decreased in 2022 for a third year in a row, according to new data released by Statistics Canada.

Canadians lived on average to 81.3 years in 2022, a drop from 81.6 in 2021, the agency notes in a Nov. 27 article. This decline was greater than in 2021 (-0.1 years), but half what was observed from 2019 to 2020 (-0.6 years).
StatCan says there were 334,623 deaths in 2022, which represents an increase of 7.3 percent from 2021. The age-standardized mortality rate also increased from 907.2 deaths per 100,000 population in 2021 to 972.5 deaths in 2022.
The agency notes that the age-standardized mortality rate was 830.5 deaths per 100,000 people in 2019 before COVID-19.
