How old are we getting? Statistics Canada to say in new census data

With every year that Canada’s baby boomers blow out another candle, the country’s population skews older.

On Wednesday, Statistics Canada will reveal just how much older we’ve become.

The agency is scheduled to release the next set of findings from the 2021 census at 8:30 a.m. EDT, and officials are set to speak at a news conference at 9:30 a.m. EDT.

The 2016 census showed Canada’s seniors over age 65 outnumbered the nation’s youth 14 years of age and younger for the first time.

A new data point on the census will provide details on transgender and non-binary populations.

The figures could help shape government policy, and ensure non-binary populations are recognized.
