April 21, 2017

Statistics Canada will release the second wave of data from the 2016 Census on May 3, covering the age and sex composition of Canada’s population, dwelling types and the makeup of those living in group housing. In this second in a series of webinars on census releases scheduled throughout the year, demographic expert Dr. Doug Norris will discuss how Canada’s age-sex composition is changing and how it differs across the country. The session will also focus on the housing arrangements of Canada’s fast-growing senior population, including retirement homes and other health-related facilities. Finally, Doug will explore the changing mix of housing types.
