Chart of the Week: Natural increase concentrated in four provinces and the territories

Canada’s population relies on two sources of growth: 1) natural increase (births less deaths) and 2) international migration. The latter is, by far, the main source with natural increase accounting for just a 2.6% share of the growth between April 1, 2023 and March 31, 2024 (the most recent period available). Put another way, Canada’s population grew by 1.27 million over this period, and only 32,900 came from natural increase. Population gains through natural increase are trending down due to an aging population and declining total fertility rates, which hit an all-time low in 2022. Natural increase peaked in 1959, with the downward trend accelerating after 2009. What’s more, the four Atlantic provinces, Quebec and B.C. experienced natural decrease.
