Immigrants to Canada and their children to dominate the Canadian population by 2041

On September 8, 2022, Statistics Canada released the “Canada in 2041: A Larger, More Diverse Population with Greater Differences Between Regions” report, projecting that immigrants and their children will increasingly account for most of Canada’s population by 2041. With the expansion of the Canadian population through immigration, visible minorities—those who are now referred to as the “racialized population” by Statistics Canada–will become increasingly apparent. Up to almost half of all toddlers 14 years old and younger, 49.7%, could be racialized Canadians in 2041, and approximately the same proportion (47.3%) of working-age people in Canada, those aged 15 to 64 years old.
