Aims and scope

Canadian Population Studies is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal that publishes original research papers, review articles, research notes and policy briefs about demography and population-related issues. The journal aims to further our understanding of population processes and their determinants, in Canada and around the world, by covering top-quality theoretical and empirical research.

Since its founding in 1974, Canadian Population Studies has been the official journal of the Canadian Population Society and the leading journal on population studies in Canada, promoting dialogue between Canadian researchers, statistical agencies and policymakers. The original editorial board included several Canadian demographers who have made an important contribution to demographic research, both in Canada and internationally, including Nathan Keyfitz, T.R. Balakrishnan, Jacques Henripin, Warren Kalbach, Anatole Romaniuk, and Leroy Stone.
