The country continues to experience population growth, mainly due to immigration, which has long been one of the main factors of its demographic development: between 2019 and 2020, there were nearly 440,000 more inhabitants in the country, of which more than 284,000 arrived through immigration.
The annual population growth rate stood at 1.09 percent in 2020, a slight decrease compared to the almost steady growth of recent years, with the COVID-19 pandemic that led to the closure of borders being a factor in this slowdown. This rate is still higher than in the United States, as the birth rate is higher in the U.S. and immigration is stronger in Canada.
