Canada Social Report: A Compendium of Social Information

CaledonInst.org – Canada Social Report: A Compendium of Social Information
Sept. 29, 2016.

Over the past few years, the loss of data in Canada − especially the troubling dismantling of the long-form Census − inspired the Caledon Institute to launch this effort. The Canada Social Report acts as a major hub for social information. It is a resource for the entire social sector – to give all of us a strong voice and a powerful evidence base for informed policy conversations and the formulation of intelligent policy solutions.

According to preliminary Statistics Canada estimates, Canada’s population was 36,286,425 on July 1, 2016, an increase of 437,815 or 1.2 percent during the year 2015-16. In absolute numbers, such an increase had not been recorded since 1988-89 (+485,034). This acceleration in population growth was mainly attributable to the record number of immigrants (320,932) who arrived in the country. Link
