MONTREAL: Canada’s population reached nearly 37 million in 2021, growing almost twice as fast as the world’s other largest developed economies thanks to record immigration, the national statistics office said Wednesday.
“One thing that has not changed from five years ago is that Canada remains the fastest growing country in the G7,” Statistics Canada said in a statement unveiling its census figures for the 2016-2021 period.
