Description / Summary
Century Initiative’s inaugural National Scorecard, released on March 30, 2021. The Scorecard provides a macro-level perspective on how Canada is progressing toward the goal of growing Canada’s population to 100 million by 2100. The Scorecard doesn’t just focus on the population target, however; it also looks at related indicators that measure Canada’s readiness to adapt to population growth, such as access to affordable childcare, the ability to attract and retain immigrants, and Canada’s capacity to grow well into the future.
The Scorecard compiles numerous data sources to provide an up-to-date and user-friendly tool for policy-makers and sector leaders. It is unique in that it pulls together data points and issues that may seem disconnected on the surface but that have a cumulative impact on what the future of Canada will look like.
