The Sixties Scoop refers to a practice that occurred in Canada of taking, or "scooping up," Indigenous children from their families and communities for placement in foster homes or adoption.

to Dumas and Péron (), between the end of the s and the mid s, the divorce rate increased fivefold. Inthe most recent year for which data are available, there were approximat divorces granted in Canada, a rate of perpeople (Statistics Canada, ).

The authors add, “The fact that the Canadian teenage pregnancy rate was less than half that of the United States suggested that north of the border birth control education had enjoyed some success.” [7] Marriage, too, was undergoing changes in the s and s.

Canada - Canada - Demographic trends: Traditionally Canada has sought to increase its population through immigration in order to expand the workforce and domestic markets.
