Population growth

Did you know Canada.. Stats Canada released an interesting report - Canada's population has increased by approx. 70,800 people since Jan 01, 2011 and it's Alberta leading the growth in the first-quarter!

While this sounds like a big jump in population it's actually down from last year. Immigration looks to be the reason for the reduced numbers. Around 49,500 immigrants arrived in Canada during this year's first-quarter, a decline compared to the 58,100 people recorded during the same time period last year.
