Product Details


Longlisted for the BC National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction [2018]
[An] important book. . . . Saunders’s new book provides a highly professional explanation of how we came to our present ‘crisis of underpopulation’—and why this crisis has beset Canada and pre-Confederation versions of Canada since the European landing. . . . Saunders is at his most persuasive in emphasizing that most of Canada’s modern history consists not of immigration into our country, but indeed of net outmigration and exodus—bleeding—by millions who went on to make their fortunes in, and pay taxes to, other countries, clearly to the loss of Canada and the Canadian project.” —The Globe and Mail
“[R]equired reading for anyone interested in Canadian demographics and the challenges and choices facing our country.” —Policy Options
“[A] timely look forward into the future from 2017, Canada’s 150th anniversary since Confederation. Maximum Canada’s central premise is sure to provoke anyone raised to embrace Canada’s open spaces and distant geography (i.e. everyone in this country).” —Pique Newsmagazine
