Canada's population is growing rapidly. Statistics Canada reports that 2023 will see the highest annual population growth rate in six decades. The country's population grew by 3.2 percent last year. This is the fastest growth since 1957. This brings the population of Canada to 40,769,890 on January 1, 2024. A total increase of 1,271,872 people compared to the beginning of 2023.

Temporary migration last year accounted for most of the growth, Statistics Canada said. Without temporary migration, the country's population growth rate would have been 1.2 percent, the Statistics Canada report also points out.
