2011 Canada Census: Strong Growth & Suburbanization Continues

Statistics Canada has just released the first results of the 2011 census. The nation's population rose to 33.5 million, from 31.6 million in 2006. This is a 5.9 percent growth rate, up from a 5.4 percent rate between 2001 and 2006 and nearly one-half above the 4.0 percent growth rate from 1996 to 2001.

Suburbanization continued apace in Canada's largest metropolitan areas. Overall, the suburbs accounted for 83 percent of the population growth in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, with 17 percent of the growth in the central municipalities. In the other major metropolitan areas (Ottawa-Gatineau, Calgary and Edmonton), the central municipalities themselves encompass nearly all of the suburban development, so that the core-suburban population increase proportion is masked.

Fantastic blog! Do you have

Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!

If indeed immigration is required

If indeed immigration is required, look at putting a preference on European cultures instead of Middle Eastern, African or Indian. these cultures have little in common with ours and language is nearly always an issue. This all costs money. Lots of money while our people have to apply for online pay day loans Canada bad credit. Now...you may be asking yourself what this has to do with family size. The connection is that the current population can't afford to have more children. Each of the suggestions I have made will reduce the cost of living nationally by reducing the cost of administering this country.
