The population of the province was 526,329 as of January 1, 2015, according to the information released by Statistics Canada.
The change in population from October 2014 to January 2015 was the result of negative net migration and natural population change. Net out-migration totaled 386 persons during the fourth quarter of 2014, largely attributable to interprovincial migration.

Natural population (deaths minus births) decreased by 122 persons in the October to December 2014 period. The number of births has been trending downward for four decades because of lower fertility rates and, more recently, a decline in the number of women of child-bearing age.
