Montreal’s population growth cools, hinting at long-term trouble | Montreal Gazette


See the tables in the link.

Where are Montrealers going?

</figure>Montreal’s population is not growing as fast as it has in the past.

The bottom line: 5,467 more people moved to Montreal Island – the city of Montreal and 15 demerged suburbs – than left in 2014-15, the latest year for which statistics are available.


That’s 42-per-cent less than the previous year’s net gain (9,465) and the worst performance since 2007-2008, when Montreal posted a net loss of 596 people due to migration, according to a new analysis by Montreal’s economic development office.

Though not alarming, the latest figures help illustrate troubling long-term trends, said Jack Jedwab, who tracks migration at the Association for Canadian Studies.


In 2014-15, Montreal posted a net loss of 14,583 people due to migration within Quebec.


Urban sprawl helps explains this (the South Shore and Laval are the favourite destinations), Jedwab said.


During the period covered, Montreal posted a net loss of 7,352 people due to inter-provincial migration.

Those leaving for other provinces are likely recent immigrants who have decided to relocate, as well as other Montrealers lured by healthier economies in Ontario and British Columbia, he added.

“When people relocate to that extent, it gives a bit of a message about the economy,” Jedwab said.


Natural growth – the number of births minus the number of deaths – helps Montreal’s population grow. On Montreal Island in 2015, there were 23,576 births and 15,033 deaths, for natural growth of 8,543.


But “without immigration, our population would stagnate,” Jedwab said.

In 2014-15, Montreal posted a net gain of 27,042 people due to international migration.

The consensus is “we need immigrants to offset our aging population and the challenges associated with that – the eroded tax base, the higher health-care costs,” he added.

About 20 per cent of immigrants who initially settle in Quebec end up moving elsewhere within a few years, Jedwab said. Provinces such as Ontario and British Columbia are net gainers in international migration – the immigrants they lose to other provinces are replaced by others arriving from other provinces, he added.

“You need a robust working-age population, which presumably immigration contributes to. And the people who leave here are very often the ones who are the most mobile.”


An influx of Syrian refugees in 2015 and 2016 should give Montreal’s population a boost.

“The question that isn’t being asked is how many of those Syrian refugees are on the verge of becoming secondary migrants” by moving to other provinces, Jedwab said. “If our objective is to have these people come and contribute to Quebec society, we need to ask ourselves if they’re going to be part of this wave of secondary movers.”


Immigrants in Quebec have a much higher unemployment rate than in places like Ontario.

Montreal has long posted net losses due to inter-provincial migration, with the 20-year peak marked in the aftermath of the 1995 referendum. In 1996-97, 10,895 more people left for other provinces than moved to Quebec from elsewhere in Canada.

Montreal Island’s total population was 1,999,795 as of June 30, 2015.

Less than 1% growth for the CMA. Toronto CMA at 1.3%, Ottawa at 1.1%, poor Montreal at 0.8%.


For what years? Census Metropolitan areas don't have any datas except on census years (2011, 2006, 2001, etc). Whats the source? And even if thats the case, its really not all that bad. With all the bad press we are receiving and the "fait français", listening to the alarming rhetoric from english montreal media and yourself, you'd think our population was stagnating, if not regressing.

In terms of metropolitan areas, our growth is better than NY, Chicago, Philly and Boston to only name those. *For a city in the north east of North America, we're doing just fine.*

Not sure we should be comparing Montreal those cities in the states. Crime rates and suburbanization trends are different there. Our cities are a lot safer.

We live in Canada, and the competition is less Boston than it is Toronto/Vancouver. The fact that we can't keep pace with these cities means we are losing power, influence, attractiveness.. and means we get 2nd tier investments.


It's all very self-explanatory really.

The art of repeatedly dodging a question. For what year are those numbers for, and what is your source?


As for comparisons with other North eastern markets, with the "ALENA" we are as much in competition with cities such as Boston, Chicago and Detroit than with Vancouver.

Its funny how some people accuse Montrealers of not being "opened to the world" and stay dogged in dépassé debates about culture. Yet the "open minded" individuals making these repeated claims wouldnt perceive the modern day global market in which we live, and only keep Toronto as a potential competitor. We shouldn't focus on Boston, Philly or other markets that are in our vicinity and are comparable in size?


Je suis sûr que Paris ne se concerne pas de ce qui se fait à Londres ou à Munich.*

Même sans ces ajouts, Montréal dépasse le taux de croissance de bien d'autres villes du Nord-Est. Cependant, cette notice apporte un point important, est-ce que les CMA des autres villes canadiennes citées dans cette discussion ont connues de telles modifications?

Toronto et Vancouver ont gardé les mêmes limites en 2015. St-Jean et St-Lin font partie de la RMR car le navettage a dépassé le threshold pour être ajoutée. Et surtout, que St-Jean est devenue une banlieue de Montréal avant de devenir une CMA. C'est pour cette raison que Oshawa ne fait pas partie de la RMR de Toronto, elle est devenue une RMR avant d'atteindre le threshold. Elle a atteint les 100,000 habitants au milieu des années 70. Déjà en 1981, la RMR de Toronto arrêtait à Ajax.
