Having a baby canada

Canada is having a mini baby boom Statistics Canada has released new information from the most recent census and we’re setting records…with babies!! According to Stats Can, the population of children aged four and under in Canada saw the highest growth rate between 2006 and 2011 since the post-WWII baby boom era.
While a child is not officially required to have a Social Insurance Number (SIN), you may wish to apply for one for your baby in order to save and invest towards the child's education in a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) and to be eligible for government programs such as the Canada Education Savings Grant.
While filling in the registration of birth form you will name your newborn by providing the baby's first, middle and last name (surname). Over the same period Belarus has cut its maternal death rate from 33 to four, making it one of the safest places to have a baby, just behind the world leaders - Iceland, Finland, Poland and Greece - where only three mothers die for every 100,000 births. It’s too early to say whether this spike in birth rates marks the start of another baby boom generation, said Jane Badets, director general of social and demographics statistics with Statistics Canada.


The first release of data in February from the 2011 census showed that Canada had 33,476,688 people, a 5.9 per cent increase over the 2006 census. Now, new census numbers released Tuesday by Statistics Canada on the age and sex of Canadians reveal more about the changing face of the population, which is roughly split between men (49 per cent) and women (51 per cent). The story of Canada’s aging face promises to play out in the coming years as a wave of workers hits retirement age, presenting challenges for politicians to ready the country and its finances. The population group aged 60 to 64 is growing most rapidly, suggesting that the aging of the country will accelerate in the coming years as baby boomers hit 65, Statistics Canada says.
While the ranks of Canadians aged 65 and older increased by just over 609,810 between 2006 and 2011, the number of children aged 14 and under grew by just 27,505, a rise of just 0.5 per cent. The number of Canadians aged 65 and older has risen steadily over the decades and now stands at almost 5 million, just 660,000 shy of the 5.6 million people aged 14 and under.


Your doctor can give you information on how to take care of yourself and your baby during the pregnancy, and can also refer you to an obstetrician. At these appointments the doctor will recommend some tests to help ensure that both you and your baby stay healthy. There were 5,825 Canadians who had lived a century or more in 2011, up 25 per cent since 2006.
