Does Canada have a minimum population for a territory to become a province? Will the political map of Canada change anytime soon by upgrading one of the territories to provincial status?

Interesting question. It's not only about population but if it was then I think it would be a long time before any of the 3 territories become provinces. At present the three territories combined only represent 3% of the population of Canada.
Does the information on these following links help you?
