Originally published: January 26, 2017

New data from Statistics Canada proves more than ever that Canada is a nation of immigrants.

According to the report Immigration and Diversity: Population Projections for Canada and its Regions, 2011 to 2036, if current immigration levels continue in the coming years, the proportion of immigrants in Canada’s population could reach between 24.5 per cent and 30 per cent in 2036, compared with 20.7 per cent in 2011.

And when you add in the number of children of immigrants, almost half of Canada’s population will be made up of immigrants or children of immigrants (between 44.2 and 49.7 per cent) in 2036, up from 38.2 per cent in 2011.
