More details on growth projections for the Greater Golden Horseshoe

August 24, 2012

Earlier this week, I wrote about a presentation I attended on the growth projections for the region in which we live.

Here are some other interesting points from the presentation:

  • over 25% of Canada’s population lives in the region
  • annually attracts nearly half of all new Canadians
  • creates 70% of Ontario’s GDP
  • will continue to be the fasted growing regions in North America
  • immigration will be the main driver of population growth
  • will be more seniors (people are living longer)
  • will also be more children (women are having more children than previously expected)
  • there will be more persons per household
  • in contrast to other parts of the country, the Greater Golden Horseshoe will have a relatively high percentage of population in the working age group because of immigration
