Canada in 2060
Immigration, Demography and First Nations
So based on this research and the general trend in population pyramids there would almost certainly be a lower birth rate. So it could be very likely that Canada will go into stage 5 of the Demographic Transition Model. If this were true, there would be a slightly higher death rate than birth rate. In the future, we would make advancements in health care and medicine leading to fewer deaths. Currently, Canada's birth rate is 10.29/1000 and the death rate is 8.39/1000. The Net Migration rate is 5.66/1000. Also, The Population Growth rate is 0.76%. The Natural Increase rate is 1.98. The population as of right now is around 36,286,378. In 2060, it will be 52.6 million according to Statistics Canada. This will be caused by immigrants as In 2060 the Natural Increase rate would most likely be negative by that time. Since, the Natural Increase rate is likely to be negative, this means Canada's population is mainly going to consist of elderly. This is because as people have fewer and fewer children, there would have been more people in the previous generation. By bringing in immigrants, Canada can introduce more young people to even out the elderly.
