WINNIPEG — Manitoba's population took another jump during the second quarter of 2009.
The numbers from Statistics Canada indicate the provincial population rose from 1,216,137 at the end of March to 1,221,964 at the end of June — an increase of more than 5,800 residents or 0.48 per cent.
That's higher than the Canadian population growth rate of 0.36 per cent. Canada's population rose by nearly 121,200 to 33,739,900 by the end of June.
The increase was largely due to net international migration, which totalled 84,800, the second-highest figure for a second quarter since 1972.
Alberta was the province with the fastest demographic growth rate from April to June 2009, at 0.59 per cent. The main contributors to the province's growth were immigration and natural increase.
