This paper presents three different emigration estimates for Canada for the 1961-71 intercensal period derived from different estimation procedures, endeavors to determine which estimate is the most reliable one and demonstrates the importance of considering emigration in the continuing reformulation of Canada's immigration policies. The contribution of immigration to Canada's population growth has received considerable analytical attention. However, much less is known about the impact which emigration has had on the nations population growth, particularly since actual data are not available on the number of persons emigrating from Canada. In view of the public discussion and the continuing governmental review of the importance of international migration to Canada's present and future population growth, additional research should be conducted in this area.
