Abstract:

Most work indicates that Canadian Jews as a collective moved toward negative population growth earlier than the general populations of the United States and Canada. This paper looks at variations among different sub-groups of Jews and finds that Canadian Jewry is not homogeneous in the marriage and birth areas: the ultra-Orthodox and the Francophone Sephardic groups show positive population growth.
