2016 Census data - Ottawa is growing...
New census data shows the population of the metropolitan area of Ottawa - Gatineau outpaced the national growth rate over the last five years.
Statistics Canada information from last year's census shows our region grew by 5.5% over the past five years, to a population of 1,323,783.
The national population growth rate was 5.0%, while Ontario's was 4.6%.
The newly-released information also shows Canada's total population has now topped 35-million people.
But all of that growth has come through immigration.
The agency says Canada's average fertility rate remains very low, at 1.6%.
A rate of 2.1% is necessary for a population to remain steady, based only on births.
