Canada in 2060

By: Amna Iqbal

Intro

Canada is a great, multicultural country that is looked upon as a positive place to live in. Canada has a rich history that involves war, many different cultures and different issues that we have overcome and still remember to this day. The question is, what does the future hold for us? In this report I'm going to evaluate what life will be like in Canada in the year 2060.

Canada's Immigration System (CURRENT)

With a declining birth rate and an increasing death rate, Canada is depending on immigrants to help balance the population and support the economy. The face of Canada is changing as more and more immigrants move into the country. Most of the new immigrants come from Asia in search for a better life. A lot of the countries in Asia have corrupted governments, war and/or unbearable living conditions. This drives them out of their countries. Anyone who comes to Canada would most certainly not feel out of place because of their culture or religion because Canada is an incredibly multi cultural place that respects everyone's way of life. In 2006 19.8% of the Canadian population was foreign.

Canada's Immigration system (FUTURE)

I believe that the face of immigration won't change by too much in the year 2060. This is because one of the main reasons Canada has so many immigrants is because a majority of the people that come here are in search of a better, safer life. As mentioned before and shown in the table above, a lot of the Canadian governments are from Asia. A reason for this is because a lot of the countries in Asia are undergoing some difficulties with the governments being corrupted and the living conditions. To fix those problems, it would take a long time so I believe more and more people will immigrate into Canada from Asia. In fact, i think at least 50% of the Canadian population will be made up of foreign people. Not only from Asia, but from all around the world.

Canadian demography (FUTURE)

By the year 2060, I believe that the birth rate and death rate in Canada will balance out and reach a neutral state. This is because as the baby boomers slowly begin to die off, the death rate will increase and the birth rate will continue at a fair pace. This will help with the overpopulating issue and there will no longer be too many people for a certain generation. Until another big bump in the birth rate happens, the birth rate and death rate will continue at a steady pace. I think that by 2060, there will be an equal amount of Canadian youth and the elderly with the baby boomer generation gone.

The first nations of canada (current)

Recently, the aboriginals have been recognized and treated with more respect from Canada. They have been given more money to sustain their communities and they have been living in peace among other Canadian citizens. Their families are growing larger and larger and less aboriginals are left on the streets. They are finally adapting well to the Canadian society and they're building strong futures for themselves.

The first nations of canada (FUTURE)

By the year 2060, i believe that the aboriginals in Canada will be living in more developed communities, more people will have actually earned degrees and that they will have an incredibly large population. The first nations are slowly adapting more and more to the Canadian society without leaving their culture behind. I think that there will be more economically successful aboriginals in the future because more people are getting post-secondary qualifications so they can get real jobs and support themselves as well as their families. This will also lead to them having more developed communities. Furthermore, the fertility rates are raising rapidly for the first nations so I believe that a large portion of the Canadian population by 2060 will be made up of people who follow the first nations culture.
