2 Total population as of July : 43, 675 which accounts for 0.1 percent of the total Canadian population. Population growth has shown a steady incline over past 20 years. Slightly Larger proportion of males than females in both the major cities and overall in the province. Median age of the population: 32.2 Population aged 15 and over: 78.5 % Population By Largest Cities Population Size and Structure

3 Historic and Projected Population Growth Based on Growth Scenario’s

4 Age pyramids (in relative value) of the Northwest Territories population, 2009 and 2036 (scenario M1) Statistics Canada. Table Estimates of population, by age group and sex for July 1, Canada, provinces and territories, annual (persons unless otherwise noted), CANSIM (database).

5 Age Structure Indicators population dependency ratio (2011) =><15yrs yrs and older 0.14 low dependency ratio Total fertility rate 2005=> =>2.06 increases in life expectancy Changes to Age and Sex Structure In 1991 the %65+ ratio was 3.1: old-age dependency was 4.1 In 2000 the %65+ ratio was 4.1: old-age dependency was 5.9 Birth Rate NWT 2004/05=> /10=> 17.0 Canada 2004/05=> /10=>11.2 median age in 2001 was 30.1 which was much younger national median age => 37 second youngest (youngest Nun) Sex ratios in the NWT have been going down for the past few years In 1956 it was and in 2006 it was males to 100 females Currently the sex ratios are males: females => 22405:21270

6 Geographic Distribution of the pPopulation Third largest territory almost people, almost half live in the capital Yellowknife rest are spread across the territory. 1/3 aboriginal, mainly Metis (French native decent) Aboriginal to non-aboriginal => 22241:21434 most populated area in the NWT is the Mackenzie Valley area Vast northern areas are sparsely populated: the Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut makes up 39% of Canada’s total area but had only 0.3% of its population in Projected Population Changes Projections: 2015 => => => between majority of the population lived in ontario, alberta, and BC increased and everywhere else dropped but the territories stayed stable (NWT)

7 Migration Between October 2010 – 2011 – 0.7% decrease in population – 3,156 persons moved away and 2,336 persons moved in Net loss 820 persons No steady trends present Statistics Canada (2011).

8 Inter-provincial Migration Most immigrants to the NWT are from other provinces Alberta is the largest contributor of migrants Between October 2010 – Approximately 31% of total in-migrants are from Alberta Net out flows also occurred between Nunavut, Yukon, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland – Net flow of -471 persons Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, and PEI migrants produce a net increase Especially NS, who contributed +184 persons In-Migrants538 persons Out-Migrants1,118 Net Flow-580

9 Net Inter-provincial Migration by Province and Territory Data (Statistics Canada, 2011)

10 International migration Approximately 5% of immigrants come from outside Canada Between October 2010 – persons left Highest been in past 2 years Between , there has been steady trend of increasing outmigration and decreasing in-migration – Except 2008 and 2010 Between July 2010/2011 = 0 out-migrants returned

11 Why are People Migrating?

12 Origin of Migrants – Philippines have been the largest contributors since 1991 – Before 2000, Viet Nam contributed the second largest amount of immigrants (13.8% between 1991 and 1995) – Large decrease seen in African immigrants (specifically Nigeria and Rwanda) between and 2001 – 2006 (decreased from 8.7% and 5.8% to 0) – Currently most immigrants within NWT are of Pilipino and British descent Changing trend as UK contribution down to 0 Country of OriginImmigrant Population (Counts) % Distribution Philippines % Ghana % United States559.2%

13 Compared to Canada – Low rates of international migration Proportion of foreign born (2001) 6.4% vs 18.4% CAN Seventh lowest of all provinces and territories But one of only three provinces and territories with relatively significant increase of proportion of foreign born between 1991 and 2001 (1.6%)
