Our country is growing and will continue to grow many years into the future. Canada's population by 2068 is expected to increase. This is unlike other developed countries would are facing population decline in the next 50 years.\nToday StatCan released a report on Canada's population projections for 50 years in the future. In 2018, the country's population was 37.1 million but that number is expected to rise to between 44.4 million and 70.2 million in 2068.\nBut just because Canada's population as a whole is expected to rise, it doesn't mean that each province and territory will see a population boom.\n"Population growth, however, is likely to vary across the country, with the population of some provinces and territories increasing and others decreasing. As a result, the provinces and territories may experience diverse opportunities and challenges over the coming decades," the report states.\nAccording to population projections released today, the population of Canada could reach between 44.4 million and 70.2 million by 2068, up from 37.1 million in 2018.

But the most prominent way Canada's population could increase is through immigration.\nBecause we have an ageing population and the amount of seniors is higher than the amount of young people, our population isn't likely to increase through births.\nBy 2068, the amount of the population that is 65 or older would be between 21.4 percent and 29.5 percent. That's an increase from the 17.2 percent of Canadians that were of that age or older in 2018.\n"This transition could affect Canadian society in various ways, placing additional pressure on pension and health care systems and decreasing the share of the working-age population," the report states.\nThe population is bound to vary from region to region and Alberta and Ontario are projected to see the most population increase in the next 50 years.\nView this post on Instagram Love for our cities, love for the province, love for everyone.

B.C. will be overtaken by Alberta by 2043 in almost all of the scenarios StatCan looked at.\nThe other Prairie provinces could follow in Alberta's footsteps and see substantial population growth over the next 25 years.\nEven though the territories are expected to see population growth, overall its representation in Canada's population as a whole would remain small.\nView this post on Instagram Sometimes called "A City Within A Park", Toronto is home to a ravine system of steep woodland corridors, measuring more than 30 times New York’s Central Park.
