Population growth in Canada’s urban regions large and small slowed for a second consecutive year in 2020/2021. New permanent immigrants to Canada accounted for the majority of population growth seen in 2020/2021, while net losses of non-permanent residents contributed in significantly reducing the growth.

These estimates, the first to give us a look at a subprovincial level for an entire year of the COVID-19 pandemic, tell of an accelerating trend in migration from large urban centres, leaving their continued growth largely supported by international migration.
