The Cherenkov Telescope Array is expected to lead to the detection of many new supernova remnants in the TeV and multiTeV range. In addition to the individual study of each, the study of these objects as a population can help constraining the parameters describing the acceleration of particles and increase our understanding of the mechanisms involved. Using Monte Carlo methods, the population of Galactic SNRs emitting TeV gamma rays can be simulated. The simulated population can be confronted with future observations to provide a novel test for the SNR hypothesis.
