Canada goes full stork

Statistics Canada 
Population growth = (natural increase=births-deaths) + (migratory increase=immigration-emigration).While the mathematics of population growth is simple, the dynamics behind the drivers of demographic changes are more complex. Over Canada's 150-year history, there have been many.In recent times, the contribution of natural increase to population growth has waned as the Canadian population aged and fertility rates declined.  Today, natural increase accounts for less than one-third of Canada's population growth and has ceased to be the major player in the equation.Meanwhile, migratory increase plays an increasing role in Canada's population growth. Migratory increase currently accounts for about two-thirds of Canada's population growth.Statistics Canada projects that immigration will not only continue to be a key driver of population growth in the coming years—without it, Canada's population growth could be close to zero in 20 years, as the population continues to age and fertility rates projected to remain below the replacement level of 2.1 children per woman.
