Description of visuals
(The Statistics Canada symbol and Canada wordmark appear on screen with the title: "Behind every number: A portrait of Canada")
All across Canada, every day, things are changing.
(Landscapes of Canada appear such as a field, a lake, a city, and icy mountain terrains.)
Our population is increasing faster than it has in almost fifty years.
(A woman holds a baby in her arms. Numbers increase from 1971: 21,568,000 to 2016: 35,151,728)
Some of us were born here, and so were our parents and grandparents. We have strong connections to our land and history.
(Indigenous person walks alongside a lake, on-screen text appears: 600+ First Nations bands in Canada)
And some of us chose to come here from other places, to find work, to chase a dream, to build a better life.
(People in an airport, on-screen text appears: 1 in 5 people in Canada was born elsewhere and a man opens up a garage door.)
Canadians now live and work in cities and urban areas.
(Fast-forward shot of people walking on a busy intersection in a city and the following text appears: 7 of 10 Canadians live in cities.)
We work hard so that at the end of the day, we can play hard too.
(An office building is shown and the following text appears: Median total income of couples: $78,870; then, we see a couple kiss.)
Go watch the game and cheer for the home team.
(Outdoor hockey game is taking place, and the following text appears: 77% of Canadians believe that hockey is an important national symbol.)
See a play, or a movie, or take the kids to a concert.
(Mother, father and daughter watch a movie at the theatre.)
Many of us also live in rural settings.
(Top view of a farm with the following text: over 6.3 million Canadians live in rural areas.)
Some of us work on farms, growing food for tables at home and around the world.
(Combine harvester on a farm, and the following text appears with a pie chart animation: Cropland makes up 54.6% of total farmland.)
And we're doing it without increasing how much water we use.
(Sprinkler appears on-screen, and the following text appears: 1.7 billion cubic metres of water used to irrigate crops.)
That's good news for our most precious natural resources, and our environment.
(Rapids and landscapes of mountains appear on-screen.)
But we don't just grow things in Canada.We make things here, too.
(Man in a factory holds a ring, and the following text appears: Sales of transportation equipment: $113 billion.)
Like cars, and parts for airplanes, and metals to build products here and abroad.
(A man inspecting part of an airplane with the following text appears: Aerospace production: $19.9 billion.)
But what binds us together is our shared values. Canadians know that access to healthcare is the greatest gift of all.
(Older man opening the door to his home to a nurse, with the following text appearing: over 25 million have family physician.)
And ours is a country where education matters.
(Classroom appears; circles appear above desks that read: Diploma; the text on-screen reads: 9 in 10 Canadians aged 25 to 64 have completed high school.)
Where children have the opportunity to learn and grow.
(Little girl is writing on a piece of paper.)
Where higher learning and research are valued and taken seriously.
(An open book appears with the following text: 2 out of 3 Canadians aged 25 to 64 have completed postsecondary education.)
How do we know all of this? Because behind every number, there's a person, a family, a relationship. Together, we write Canada's story.
(Various scenes of cities, landscapes, families, and the little girl as she writes on the floor.)
(Canada 150 logo appears.)
(Canada wordmark appears.)
