Canadian Studies: Statistics Canada and Taxation Issues

canadian studies: Between 2001 and 2006 about 11,500 more people left the province than moved here, according to CTV. Jack Jedwab of the Association for Canadian Studies looked at the data provided by Statistics Canada to determine how many Quebecers were leaving. Data from the census shows that between 2011 and 2016 Quebec had a net loss of 37,000 people, while in the previous five years the net loss was about 20,000.
