Canadas Demography in 2040
Currently, now the birth rate of Canada is going up by 10.75 births during a year per 1,000 people.
Calculations: 385,937/35,871,000 x 1000 = 10.74 births per 1000 people
Compared to how the birth rate is now, from the time it was in the 1950's, where it was the era of the baby boom, the number of births has dropped down immensely from then to what it is now.
Philippines Immigration 2014 vs 2040
These days, the immigration to the Philippines is not so high because of the tsunami they took in last year and are recovering from, this very moment. However, not only that but the Philippines don't really have many pull factors that would attract people to going there. Instead people would emigrate from there, to live in a much more better, advanced and developed country. There society is really poor and would need a lot of developing to get the attention of people to immigrate there, such as countries like Canada, Australia, U.S.A and etc. Although, people do go there for vacation because of the weather they have temporarily. Though rates and the population pyramid shows that even if the Philippines economy advances in the future near 2040, not many people will immigrate to there because other countries would be already further advanced in everything, and people would be already settled in the country they are living in.
The Net migration for the Philippines right now -1.23 %, meaning more people emigrate from the Philippines.
Phillipines Push and Pull factors
- high amount of unemployment
- lack of education
- low payment (mostly get only $200 per month)
- high crime rate
- The weather ( rains a lot, but isn't really cold there)
- Can stay there without a visa up to 24 months
- can easily apply for a permanent residence, 99% cases
- Beaches, 7000 islands, fishing, sailing, waterfalls, blue lagoons

Comparring Canada and Philippines (2014 and 2040)
Canada's demography and immigration seems to be doing pretty well and balanced so far. Attracting many people to immigrate to there, because of their quick advance in their facilities and systems. Though the birth rate have been decreasing so far, because of females using birth controls. The death rate has been also decreasing for the better, making the country be one of the safest place for people to live. Then on the other hand, the Philippines really doesn't have many pull factors to lean on, to make people to immigrate there. Except for the fact, that they have amazing beaches and resorts, which attracts many people to going there temporally. Despite that, the country has still been developing, maybe not fast enough, but their birth rate is much higher than Canada's now, and even in 2040. Overall, both countries don't really have a lot of similarities, and instead are at different stages for their demography, but also at different paces with their developing of their countries.
