Canada has ten provinces and three territories. The three territories of Nunavut, Yukon, and Northwest Territories account for over a third of Canada's area but have very few people, which can make the population density column somewhat misleading. The territories have a smaller combined population than the smallest province, Prince Edward Island. Canada's population is concentrated in the areas close to the U.S. border. As a result, most Canadians live in areas with densities higher than the national average of 3.61 persons per square kilometer.

All territories and provinces excluding Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Yukon Territory increased in population from July 2006 to July 2007. In terms of percentage change, the fastest-growing province or territory was Alberta with an increase of 3.1% from July 2006 to July 2007, followed by Nunavut with 2.3% growth. The fastest-shrinking provinces or territories were Newfoundland and Labrador and Yukon Territory with a loss of 0.7% for both from July 2006 to July 2007.

As a whole, Canada's population grew by 1.0% from July 2006 to July 2007. Canada's population has increased every year in the 2002-2007 period.
