Canada had the smallest population growth in the third quarter this year since 1946


A recent report issued by Statistics Canada shows that in the third quarter of this year, Canada’s population growth increased by 2,767, the least growth since 1946. The main reason for the near-zero growth in population was the COVID-19 pandemic, which prompted the Canadian government to impose travel restrictions on international travellers. Consequently, the “travel restrictions” created obstacles for new immigrants to come to land in Canada.
