While Canada's median age increases, Alberta attracts all the youngsters

The most recent Canadian census numbers show Alberta is the province attracting the most amount of young people, the Globe and Mail reports.

While most of Canada’s population is now over the age of 40, more and more young people are moving to job-rich Alberta and starting families there–effectively lowering the province’s median age.

From the Globe:

In the first quarter of 2011, Alberta attracted nearly as many Canadians who moved to a new province as the nine other provinces combined. It doubled the number of immigrants it attracts over the last decade and it has by far the smallest share of people of retirement age in Canada.
