Annual Demographic Estimates: Canada, Provinces and Territories, 2020
Notice to readers

Estimates released in this publication are based on the 2016 Census counts adjusted for census net undercoverage (CNU) and incompletely enumerated Indian reserves (IEIR) to which is added the estimated demographic growth for the period going from May 10, 2016 to the date of the estimate.

These estimates are not to be mistaken with the 2016 Census counts.

The analysis in this publication is based on preliminary data. These data will be revised over the coming years, and it is possible that some trends described in this publication will change as a result of these revisions. Therefore, this publication should be interpreted with caution.

Most of the components, used to produce preliminary population estimates, are estimated using demographic models or based on data sources less complete or reliable, albeit more timely, than those used for updated or final estimates.
