I mean, yeah, 90% of Canada is empty, but those areas generally have little purpose outside of resource extraction. If you added 100 million people to Canada I doubt the geographic scope of settlement would change much; it would still be "Chile".
Will be interesting if that remains true in the future. A warming climate will likely push zones of habitability north, into areas of Canada that can't support large populations today. What will the climate be like in 2100 in northern reaches of the provinces? I've seen a number of articles suggesting that Canada will be a "winner" in global warming and that significant parts of Canada that are too cold for much agriculture and industry today will support such things in 50 to 75 years.
