The speed at which Canada’s population is growing was also reflected in new data released Wednesday by the federal agency: between Jan. 1 2023 and Jan. 1 2024, Canada added 1,271,872 inhabitants, a 3.2 per cent growth rate — the highest since 1957.

Most of Canada’s 3.2 per cent population growth rate stemmed from temporary immigration. Without it, Canada’s population growth would have been 1.2 per cent, Statistics Canada said.


Gaslighting???  Is there such a thing a “temporary immigration” or does temporary become permanent when no one is looking??

BTW – that 1 million additional migrants in a year – no wonder housing/rental costs are astronomically higher!
