Report: Alberta Projected To See Highest Population Growth Over Next 15-Years

Alberta is projected to see the biggest growth in population across Canada over the next 15 years.

A report released by Statistics Canada on Tuesday suggests the number of people living in the province will be between 6 million and 7.3 million by 2043.

This would be a big increase from the 4.3 million who called Alberta home in 2018.

The report suggests Alberta and Ontario will account for half of the country’s projected growth during this span of time.

The province also has a chance to surpass the population of British Columbia.

Statistics Canada only highlighted growth for entire provinces, however, Wood Buffalo’s population has seen a big decrease since 2015.

According to the 2018 census, the number of people living in the RMWB has dropped by over 10 per cent – sitting at 111,687 which includes the shadow population.

Meanwhile, the report also notes Canada’s population will be around 55 million.
