MONTREAL, March 15 /CNW Telbec/ - On March 13h Statistics Canada offered
a statistical portrait of Canadians on the basis of its first release from the
2006 census. Despite a 5.4% rate of population growth between 2001 and 2006,
the census findings reaffirmed that Canada continues to face important
demographic challenges arising from the aging of its population. Today the ACS
releases the findings of a national survey on how Canadians feel our
population problems are most effectively addressed. The national survey
reveals that Canadians prefer aggressive family policies rather than
significant increases to immigration levels -see report at www.acs-aec.ca.
Next Week the ACS will release studies on the following topics
