Workshops: Learn how to create well defined population projections scenarios based on current trends using open tranparent methods and data to the municipal level.

Population analysis of current trends in the compenents of population change - births (fertility), deaths (life expenctancy), in-migration, and out-migration, by age and sex - is the foundation upon which to examine social and economic activity.

Attendees will learn the cohort change ratio method for creating projections (aka Census Survival Ratios, a United Nations term), an easy to understand, openly verifiable and reproducible method referring to open, readily available public data - Statistics Canada's Census of Population counts, arguably the best data with which to examine current demographic trends.

Presentations provide a description of a community's current demographic trends as well as clearly explained population projection scenarios to the municipal level.

Consulting: For people who would like to see what the future will look like if current demographic trends continue and may also be interested in alternative scenario projections.
