Canada has registered huge growth in population in the first half of the year 2018. In fact, the 2nd half of the year recorded record population growth since 1971. In last few years, Canadian government has implemented several immigration rule changes to ease the immigration rules and process requirements to allow more and more permanent residents in the country. Express Entry has been the key immigration pathway for the skilled and talented people in overseas countries to apply and obtain fast PR in Canada.

Massive Population growth in 2nd Quarter

In the 2nd quarter of the year 2018, Canadian population raised by 168,687. The key factor here is that the international immigrants, who landed in Canada through different immigration programs account for 82 percent of the total immigration growth in the 2nd quarter of the year. The Statistics Canada considers this immigration influx unpreceded while they release the data.

Immigration has been the key reason for massive population growth throughout Canada, i.e. across different provinces and territories of the maple leaf country. Significant growth has been observed in all categories of immigration, i.e. permanent residents as well as non-permanent resident category immigrants.

Low birth rate compensated by the international immigration

The low birth rate and high number of deaths caused the decrease in population in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick provinces, however, it got compensated due to the high number of overseas immigrants arriving in these provinces. Between April 1 and July 1 overseas immigration has been the primary contributor to the population growth across most of the provinces and territories in Canada.
