The Québec population increased by only 19,300 in 2020, compared to nearly 110,000 in 2019. This significant slowdown is related to the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to considerably reduced international migration gains and more deaths in 2020.
Between 2019 and 2020, population growth slowed in regions where large urban centres are located, particularly in Montréal, a development that can be linked to the COVID-19 pandemic.
