The results of the census for 2021 have been recently released by Statistics Canada. The report included recent data and statistics on the ethnocultural diversity in the country, as well as data on immigration. The results are really not that surprising as they showed that immigrants have been a huge factor in the increase in population in Canada.
For many years, Canada has been creating policies and routes that would not only attract immigrants to the country but would also help them move to the country at the soonest time possible. These programs have also been designed to ensure that the immigrants choose to stay in the country rather than go back home to their home country after they have finished and completed their goal in Canada. Examples of such would be immigrant students who may have already finished their studies, and immigrant workers whose work contracts have already expired.
The census done by Statistics Canada
Statistics Canada is the official agency of the Canadian government that does surveys and collects and analyzes the data that they have. They do this to learn about the people in Canada and see any potential problems. Every five years, the agency would send out census forms to each and every household in Canada. Households then have to fill out the forms as it is a mandatory responsibility.
The census is done to be able to give the government, as well as everyone in Canada, important information regarding the people in the country, as well as the housing units. There is data based on demographic, economic, and social characteristics. People who would be reading the census report would be able to learn a number of things, including how people identify themselves in terms of ethnicity; the number of people usually living in one home; what languages people speak; people’s level of education; as well as people’s income. With this data, the government of Canada would be able to see what are the needs of the people in the country and properly allocate funds for any initiatives.
Immigrants as part of the population
As per the report on the census, around 23% of the population of Canada is an immigrant or has become a permanent resident. This is said to be the biggest portion of the population that immigrants have had so far. This means that in 2021, the Canadian population will have 8.3 million immigrants.
With the given data and the trends, Statistics Canada is estimating that the population of immigrants in the country will keep on going up. It has even shared that it is seeing a 34% increase by 2041. The increase in the immigrant population can be because of the government’s Immigration Levels Plan, which has been growing its target number.
