Population Issues in Canada
Within Canada the population density ranges from almost zero in the northern regions, to more than 5000 people per square kilometer in the major urban areas. Due to the large areas that are uninhabited, Canada's overall population density is quite low. (Matthews & Morrow, 1995) However, Toronto and Vancouver are experiencing serious problems associated with their rapid, unplanned growth, yet Canada continues to actively seek large numbers of immigrants who gravitate towards these regions. (Address to the Humanist Assoc. of Canada, 1995)
When considering population, the policy makers compare Canada with other countries, many of which are grossly overpopulated and showing signs of severe ecological, social and political stress. (Address to the Humanist Assoc. Of Canada, 1995) It is usually decided that Canada has too few people, compared to these other countries. What are not considered however, are the carrying capacity of ecosystems in Canada and the long-term historical trend of the growth of human population.
