To view this page ensure that Adobe Flash Player version 10.2.0 or greater is installed.
This product uses a dynamic age pyramid to show the evolution of the age structure of the Canadian population over the period from 1921 to 2011. It uses total population counts from the census for census years. Between census years, total population counts were extrapolated using the annual rates of population growth from the Population Estimates Program. For all years included between 1921 and 2011, the age structures are those of the Population Estimates Program.
The following table presents data from 1921 to 2011 for Canada, Provinces and Territories
