Many persons have taken part to this new edition of the Report on the demographic situation in Canada. I would like to thank first the authors, Anne Milan (Part I) as well as Patrice Dion and Simon Coulombe (Part II), for the quality and relevance of their analysis.

I would also like to thank those who contributed to the revision of the Report this year: Rosemary Bender, Réjean Lachapelle, Johanne Denis, Éric Caron Malenfant, Hubert Denis, Frank Gabowiecky and Jean Bergeron (Citizenship and Immigration Canada). My thanks goes also to Geography Division, Census subject matter Secretariat, Census operation Division, Dissemination Division, Lenka Mach of Social survey methods Division as well as Mireille Vézina, Ian Kisbee, Christina Jaworski and Janie Saumure, all from Demography Division. Finally, Carol D'Aoust has all my gratitude for his commitment to the Report on the demographic situation, a publication that greatly benefited from his support years after years.
