Census 2016 demographic shift

The results from the 206 Census (the first full results one, after the years of obscurantism of the Harper government) have uncovered an interesting demographic shift in Canada.

Here is a good analysis from The Globe an Mail.

Percentage of Canadian Households per occupancy:

28%  people live alone.

26% couple with children

26% couple without children.

And 42 of the top 50 places where people live alone are in Quebec.

And multiculturalism is reflected in the languages spoken at home; where 49.6% of households speak English, French, and a third non-official language.
