I wonder if quarterly comparisons might have issues.. I feel like people who move provinces are more likely to do so at certain times of the year (I'd imagine May and September are the peak moving months)... perhaps comparing this last quarter to the same quarter of last year (ie. Q3 2014 to Q3 2013) might be a better comparison.

I never thought to try and compare between quarters. It's always been by year for me.

This is definitely true. If you're looking to establish trends, it's more useful to compare four consecutive Q3s or Q2s or whatever, then to compare just the past four quarters.

+60 701 ... what a shame. I'm far to be satisfied.

Anything Under +82 000 and/or 1% is not good.

But it's just me, and it is just numbers

Same here! Anything under 412 000 (10 percent) is total garbage! Ugh haha jk

The big 4 provinces are all doing fairly well I think, some obviously better than others but I see it balancing out soon. Alberta's growth is stabilizing, BC's growth is increasing, so hopefully that will create a stronger dynamic rather than the growth being ruled by two provinces.

Ontario's numbers seem to be recovering a bit. Wasn't Alberta actually first place in absolute numbers for the past couple years?

It was last year, with about 7000 more than Ontario I think. However, Statistics Canada has revised the estimates made over the past 2 years as of this morning. All of the numbers are different. It now shows that Ontario outgrew Alberta in 2012/2013 by over 20 000, which wasn't the case when I looked at the numbers yesterday.

I still have the page from yesterday up on one of my computers. I will screen shot it and compare it with the new numbers once I have access to my office computer. Regardless, the trend is showing decreasing growth in both Ontario and Alberta, as Alberta grew by 4000 less than last year, and Ontario grew by 14 000 less.

^ If so that's a positive sign for the entire country. It's nice to see growth spread around more as opposed to being lopped entirely in Alberta and Ontario.

I agree entirely. However, according to these new numbers, Quebec has declined significantly in growth too, by around 9 000 since last year.

That said, BC's growth has increased by over 8000, which is a great sign of recovery in that province.

I agree. The faster you grow, typically, the faster you grow. That and you're making the numbers work for you by grouping in three provinces with small rate of growth with one province with a high rate of growth. Alberta's growing at the same rate as Ontario (by total number), and much faster (by percentage). If you want a pissing contest, don't bend the numbers to support your position.

Uh, relax buddy. I wasn't 'bending' anything. I was responding to a poster (not an Albertan poster) who posted the comparison first. He was comparing regions of the country by comparable populations; the east, Ontario, and the west. Really nothing to get all jerky over. Maybe try doing a second of research before insulting people next time. Sound good?

Also, all 4 western provinces have relatively high rates of growth, Alberta's is just exceptionally high.

All told though, Canada isn't exactly growing very quickly.

Considering that in 20 years children who wore flowers in their hair in the 60s are going to be anointed with flowers on their tombs, population growth doesn't look too rosy.

Australia is growing at 1.6% per year............ in 300 or 40 years Australia could easily overtake us in population.

Australia is ground zero for global warming.

Obviously, ever country will have its challenges in the future but Australia appears especially vulnerable with its lack of farmland and clean drinking water. This will be exacerbated by the worsening floods and forest fires. And the country has limited resources with which to grow food as is, what with the desert covering a large part of the interior. I wouldn't be surprised if the population in Australia peaks in the coming decade.
