Population of Canada
Population Change Since Midnight
We are a diverse, non-partisan network of Canadians from the business, academic, and charitable sectors with a shared belief that, with the right approach to growth, we can enhance our economic strength and resilience at home, and our influence abroad. As a registered charity, our vision is a Canada that thinks and plans not just for today, but for future generations. Because prosperity takes planning.Meet Our Team
We advocate for policies and programs that would increase Canada’s population to 100 million by 2100. We lead, enable and support long-term thinking and planning required to manage this growth well and ensure a high quality of life and standard of living for all.
Advocate for a big and bold vision for Canada – and the policies and priorities that will create the conditions for Canada to thrive and grow well into the future.
Educate Canadians about the importance of smart population growth, and about the need to ensure the benefits of growth are widely shared.
Partner with researchers and practitioners to fill the relevant policy and program gaps, and to inform decision-making.
Convene stakeholders from across sectors to generate knowledge, inform policy, and raise awareness of our vision and mission for Canada.
The world is changing at an incredibly rapid pace, and Canada is falling behind. We’re on track for a 53% decline in annual real GDP growth, and our population will only be 53 million by the year 2100. This puts us outside of the top 45 countries and in a precarious position: an aging population, an endangered infrastructure, and diminished international clout.
100 million isn’t an arbitrary number. It’s the population we need for Canada to remain a prosperous and diverse society with relevance on the international stage.
