High housing costs spur multigenerational households in Canada

  • Over 200 languages now spoken in Canada: census

Newfoundland and Labrador saw the biggest jump in its proportion of one-person households between 2001 and 2016, at 36.4 per cent, followed by New Brunswick, 24.9 per cent, Prince Edward Island, 20.2 per cent, and Nova Scotia, 19.4 per cent.

The number of multi-generational families, or at least three generations living under the same roof, increased 37.5% but still only makeup 2.9% of all households across the country, or 3.9% in Ontario. Statistics Canada reported that 34.7% of young adults aged 20 to 34 were living with at least one parent a year ago, up from 30.6% in 2001. Statistics Canada counted 28,030 foster children aged 14 and under in Canada in 2016.

It is important to note the census release measured household composition or whether children lived with parents, rather than whether a particular couple had children.

ONE-PERSON households accounted for 28.2% of all households in 2016-the highest share since Confederation in 1867.

The trend is also prominent in Indigenous communities: in Nunavut, one in eight households was multigenerational, while in the Northwest Territories, the living arrangement makes up 4.3% of all households. And, the younger a person is, the more likely they are to live in the family home. The national average in 1951 was just 7.4%.

Dead In Minneapolis School Explosion
The Hennepin County Emergency Management confirms that natural gas from contracted construction caused the school explosion. He wouldn't confirm to The Associated Press that company workers were on site, saying: "We are trying to figure it out".

For the first time in the country's history, the number of one-person households has surpassed all other types of living situation.

During that same period, the number of young people living with families of their own dwindled to 41.9 per cent, down from 49.1 per cent.

According to a study done on the disintegration of food habits, if you're a single, you are more likely to skip breakfast, and singles in B.C. are three times more likely to skip breakfast compared to the rest of the population.

"The high proportion of young adults living with their parents in Ontario is most likely the result of a combination of economic realities, including the high cost of housing, and cultural norms that favour young adults living with their parents for longer, " Statistics Canada said in a report. It's simple math: We need more homes because more of us are living alone.

The trend is even more pronounced in the capital region, where one-third of our dwellings have just one resident. In general, cities with a higher-than-average proportion of young adults living with parents are found in the Greater Toronto Area and B.C.'s Lower Mainland.

You Need Special Glasses If You Want To See The Eclipse

Nationally, the number of couples living in households without children grew faster than the number living with them.

In a release of 2016 census information today, Statistics Canada reported that 45 per cent of the population in Campbell River over the age of 15 is married compared to 50 per cent in 2011, when the last census was done. Twelve percent of same-sex couples had children living with them. That is significantly more than in the US, where just 5.9% of couples decided not to tie the knot in 2010, but well below the percentage in Sweden at 29%.

More than a third of young adults aged 20 to 34 were living with at least one parent in 2016, a share that has been increasing since 2001, according to the census.

The proportion of couples living common law was higher in Canada than in the United States, where 5.9% of couples were in non-marital cohabiting unions (in 2010).

The baby boomers who fuelled such population growth in the 20th century are empty nesters in the 21st.
