Canadian Growth . . . .


From today's Globe and Mail:

Canada hits 33 million

The Canadian Press - December 19, 2007

OTTAWA — Canada's population has exceeded the 33-million mark, Statistics Canada says.

And Saskatchewan, with more than a million people for the first time in six years, has supplanted Alberta as the country's fastest growing province.

The federal agency estimated Canada's population at 33,091,200 on Oct. 1, up 115,200 from July 1.

_______________


The population growth rates in four provinces – Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Ontario and Alberta – exceeded the national rate during the third quarter.

_______________


Net international migration accounted for two-thirds of the country's population increase. (Emphasis mine, Ed.)

Next year "drf" and I will be glad to add our +2 to the growing population of our future home . . . .
