What happens to our economy if our population is kept stable?
Endlessly growing the population is not a long term solution. Eventually we will have to figure out how to manage an economy with a stable population. I see no reason not to start now. More importantly, would you rather live in slow/no growth economy where your kids and grand-kids could can afford housing or would you rather live in faster growth economy where housing prices continue to rise faster than wages and leaves more and more people behind?

More importantly, the idea that Canada has "lots of space" is a myth in practice because everyone wants/needs to live in big cities. If Canada really had "lots of space that people want to use" we would not see out of control property prices.
