Atlantic Canada has fewer people than projected just a decade ago, and more of us are in the older demographic. In other words we are fewer than expected and older than expected. This paper is an update of AIMS' research more than a decade ago that first pointed to the looming population crunch
Atlantic Canada's percentage of the Canadian population has declined continuously during the past half-century, and further declines seem likely. In large measure that can be attributed to the fact that the region, and each province in it, receives disproportionately small shares of immigrants to Canada.
