Immigration and Diversity: Population Projections for Canada and its Regions

Journals and periodicals: 91-551-X


These analytical products present projections of the diversity of the Canadian population. The purpose of these projections is to paint a potential portrait of the composition of Canada’s population according to different ethnocultural and language characteristics, if certain population growth scenarios were to become reality in the future. Produced using Demosim, a microsimulation model, these projections cover characteristics such as place of birth, generation status, visible minority group, religion and mother tongue.


Statistics Canada has discontinued Immigration and Diversity: Population Projections for Canada and its Regions, a publication analyzing population projections on immigration and ethnocultural diversity made using Demosim, a microsimulation projection model. The last edition of this publication was released in January 2017.

Please note that another publication, Demosim: Reports and Analytical Studies (17-20-0001), was subsequently created to consolidate all articles and reports related to Demosim, including immigration and diversity projections, Indigenous populations and households projections, Demosim technical reports, etc.
