How long will you live?
Life expectancy for Canadians varies regionally.
- Annual mortality rates are higher in the most rural areas (those with no commuters) than in urban areas.
- Conversely, the Aboriginal population has a much lower life expectancy than the total Canadian population: at least five years lower.
- 84 longest lifespan for a Canadian woman (British Columbia)
- 79 longest lifespan for a Canadian man (Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia)
