International Migration To Canada Became A Record In Second Quarter Of 2018

International migration contributed to 82% growth in the population between 1st April and 1st July 2018

International migration to Canada left everybody shocked by reaching an unexpected, unbelievable, and unprecedented point in the three-month period from 1st of April to the 1st of July 2018. The total population increase has become the second largest record for a period of 3 months since 1971. An increase occurred in the country’s population by 168,687 in 2018’s second quarter. And, 82% of that (138,978) was a contribution of the international migration.

According to the Statistics Canada, such migration had never been for any quarter. This migration was the significant contributor to the country’s population increase in the second quarter of 2018 at both levels national and provincial.

The calculation of the international migration growth is done by adding the number of immigrants, returning emigrants and net non-permanent residents reaching Canada and after that, taking away net temporary emigration and emigrants leaving the country.

In the quarter period, the country, at the national level, left its door open in order to 87,661 new immigrants. A growth in the non-permanent residents occurred by 60,446 during this quarter.This rise is more than those noticed in the latest years. All is because of an increase in the number of work permit holders, study permit holders, and refugee claimants.

This rise of international migration for a 3-month period helped offset, according to Statistics Canada, the number of deaths for a period of three months (67,997). On the whole, the country’s estimated natural population growth (births minus deaths) of 29,709 was the third lowest for a second quarter of the year. Two Canadian provinces New Brunswick and Nova Scotia had a natural reduction in population (more deaths than births), which was counteracted by the international migrant numbers who reached the two provinces.

As per Statistics Canada, the international migration rise was the significant contributor to the population increase in many provinces of the country and the Yukon Territory between 1, April and 1, July.

Apart from Alberta, Newfoundland and Labrador, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, international migratory increase either reached the peak (or close to it) in the Yukon Territory and the remaining provinces of Canada.

The significant province of Canada Quebec had a gain of 19,506 non-permanent residents. It is the most that has ever been recorded in a three-month period. Ontario and British Columbia also witnessed an unexpected rise in the number of non-permanent residents for a second quarter (28,329 and 8,189).
