Everyone in Canada is, or has been, a part of a family. The purpose of this Just the Facts edition is to celebrate families in Canada on Family Day 2019 (a statutory holiday in some provinces) by acknowledging their diversity and how they have changed over time. Data from the Census of Population and the General Social Survey together provide a snapshot of families today in the historical album of family life in Canada.
