Canada and South Korea in 2040
2015 Vs 2040
Canadian Immigration (2015 vs. 2040)
Canadian Demography (2015 vs. 2040)
Canada in 2015 will register a average annual growth rate (approximately 1%), while the death rate is annually declining. However, Canada's population growth is expected to fall in 2040, mainly because of a decline in natural increase. Today Canada's growth rate is higher than the death rate by at least 60%. But around 2040, deaths are expected to start outnumbering births. From that point forward immigration would be the only growth factor for Canada.
Push and Pull Factors
Its no secret many choose to leave South Korea for a more opportunistic country like Canada. Canada would have more pull factors in 2015 or/and 2040 due to is never ending immigration policies and job opportunities. South Korea on the other hand isn't too lucky, with a substantial amount of push factors. For example; more air pollution, poverty, expensive treatments etc. However, this is likely to change by 2040, when there aren't as many people leaving as coming.
the median age of any canadian today is 41.1, but, by 2040 it is supposedly 54.4. In South Korea the median age is thirty four, by 2040 its going to be about forty eight.
