Migration

For the intraprovincial areas, the components (immigration, emigration, returning emigrants, interprovincial and intraprovincial migration) are extracted from tax files by broad age groups and sex.  Depending on the component, the data is then distributed by single year of age and sex, based either on the mobility information extracted from the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS), or on the provincial and territorial distribution. To ensure their consistency, the estimates are subsequently controlled to the provincial and territorial totals (except for the case of the intraprovincial migration).

Net temporary emigrants

Statistics Canada, Demography Division – based on data from the Reverses Record Check (RRC) for the 2011 Census, and the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS). Data were distributed by region, single year of age and sex according to the emigrant distribution.

Non-permanent residents

Statistics Canada, Demography Division – based on data provided by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Data were distributed by region, single year of age and sex according to the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS).
