Canada in 2060

Immigration & Demography
Right now, the government is accepting more immigrants into Canada because our birth rate being 10.28, our death rate being 7.87, and our natural increase rate being 2.41 right now due to not many babies being born. Many of these immigrants came from countries like Pakistan, Israel, Poland, Germany, Vietnam, China, and India from the 1880 - present. They left their countries (push factors) because of reasons such as war, communism, terrorism, poverty, financial issues, violence, low playing jobs, and bad healthcare. They decided to come to Canada (pull factors) because we have good, free healthcare, job opportunities, good education, multicultural, good living conditions, and overall safe.
I believe in the year 2060, Canada will be accepting more immigrants than they are right now. The birth rate will stay similar to as it is right now and the death rate will increase due to the baby boomers beginning to die or get close to the age of dying. This will have the natural increase rate around 1.00 - 1.50. We may be able to get immigrants from communist countries such as North Korea or Cuba if they become democratic. Our push and pull factors will stay mostly the same. We may see a decrease in refugees because maybe less wars and persecutions will happen.
During 2060, I believe the Indian Act will still be around and the First Nations people will still be trying to get rid of it along with fighting for their rights. Natives will slowly begin to bond with the rest of Canada and will start to live along side them. This will at one point get rid of the Indian Act and all of Canada can live together peacefully. The Native's will help Canada's birth rate go up when they'll need more births in 2060.
Canadians have portrayed Natives incorrectly.
