Canada in 2060:
What will she look like?
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT CANADA WILL LOOK LIKE IN THE FUTURE? PERHAPS 40 OR 50 YEARS FROM NOW? HOW WILL THE IMMIGRATION TO CANADA BE DIFFERENT? THE DEMOGRAPHY? WILL THE FIRST NATIONS BE LIVING DIFFERENTLY? HERE ARE MY PREDICTIONS AS TO HOW CANADA WILL BE DIFFERENT:
Immigration 45 years from Today:
This is the cause of family and friends already living in these big cities.
The three provinces that immigrants will most likely settle in are Ontario, Québec, and British Columbia.
*The Pull Factors include free health care, better education, a set of rights guaranteed by the Constitution and Charter of Rights and Freedom. Canada is also very multicultural.
Death Rate: 8.42 deaths/ 1 000 population
Life Expectancy: 81.76
Population Growth Rate: 0.75%
Net Migration Rate: 5.66 migrants/ 1 000 population
Canada's Demography 45 years from Today:
By 2060 the majority of the baby boomers will be extinct, this meaning the death rate had been high for the years leading up to 2060. Starting in 2060 the death rate will begin to decrease or stay the same for a couple years hence I predict the death rate in 2060 to be around 10 deaths/ 1 000 population.
Using my predictions from above I can assume the natural increase rate to be around -0.1%. The natural increase would be negative if there are more deaths than births.
Because of improved health care I the life expectancy will be higher in 2060, hence I predict it will be around 85.
Future for First Nations 45 years from Today:
