Demographic estimates for Canada, the provinces and the territories are now available for the second quarter. Revised estimates from the second quarter of 2001 to the first quarter of 2018 are also available. Demographic estimates up to and including the second quarter of 2016 are final.

  Note to readers

For the first time, the estimates released today are based on 2016 Census counts adjusted for census net undercoverage and incompletely enumerated Indian reserves, to which are added the population growth estimates for the period from May 10, 2016, to the date of the estimate. The data starting from July 2001 were also revised.

Upcoming releases

Exceptionally this year, annual population estimates (from July 1, 2017, to July 1, 2018) for the population by age and sex will be released on December 13, later than the release of the annual population estimates (from July 1, 2017, to July 1, 2018) for the total population, released today.

Canada's population estimates for the third quarter will be released on December 20.
