Rekord Migration lässt Kanada’s Bevölkerung wachsen
March 23, 2023 -
Die Bevölkerung von Kanada hat 2022 um eine Million zugenommen, vor allem durch die Rekrutierung von Migranten für das Land.
Canada’s population grew by 1,040,110 people from Q1 2022 to Q1 2023, according to Statistics Canada – the first time annual growth has surpassed one million people.
The increase from 38,516,138 to 39,566,248 people is in part due to government efforts to encourage migrants to the country to ease labour shortages and support an ageing population.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been attracting more immigrants to Canada since gaining power in 2015, with international migration now accounting for 96% of the country’s population growth – making it the fastest-growing G7 country.
