Canada’s 2022 excess deaths on pace to shatter 2021 and 2020

Canada’s 2022 excess deaths trajectory is on pace to shatter the total from 2021 – and obliterate that from 2020.

Canada’s 2022 excess deaths on pace to shatter 2021 and 2020

Excess deaths is the term that indicates whether a region had more or fewer deaths than expected, given demographics and historical trends. The figure helps calculate the true impact of a health crisis. 

Canada’s reporting lags behind most other first-world countries. The current total for excess deaths in 2022 is only recorded up to week 35.

Health Canada data indicates 13,940 excess deaths took place in 2022 up to this point – August 27. 

At week 35 in 2021, the total excess deaths was 10,406. In 2020, the total was 8,057.

In other words, the 2022 excess death total, with an 85% vaccinated population, is on pace to far surpass the total from 2020 when no one was vaccinated in Canada.

Understanding the true impact of the pandemic between 2020 and 2022 was impossible without the excess death numbers. 

Of course, the Covid virus evolved. As a result, different variants had more or less severity. 

In 2020, the dominant variant was Alpha, while by the middle of 2021 the Delta variant became prevalent in Canada. 

Legacy media created hysteria around the Delta variant in 2021, as the just-vaccinated population was learning they were not immune from getting infected with Covid. 

Data suggested that the Delta variant was more contagious than Alpha, but less deadly. Furthermore, research indicates the Omicron variant – which became dominant in 2022 – is even less lethal than the Delta. 

The cause of excess deaths could be several factors, including missed cancer screenings, suicides, mental health deterioration from the lockdowns and pandemic, and countless other possibilities. 

Health Canada says death by the Covid vaccine is not one of those factors. Health Canada acknowledges 400 reports of death by covid vaccination, but it has confirmed the legitimacy of none of those claims.
