As of April 1, 2011, Canada's population was estimated at 34,349,200, up 70,800 (+0.2%) from January 1, 2011. Alberta registered the fastest first-quarter increase (+0.4%) in the country.

Nationally, the growth in population was lower than the increase of 85,200 estimated for the first quarter of 2010. This slowdown was mainly the result of a decline in net international migration. Canada had a net inflow from international migration of 49,300 in the first quarter, down from 61,300 in the first quarter of 2010. This decline was due mainly to lower levels of immigration.

During the first quarter, Canada received 49,500 immigrants compared with 58,100 for the same quarter in 2010.
