Canada's Future Demographic Situation
In 2050, our population pyramid will look entirely different than it is currently. After about 20-30 years, we will have a lot of very old people, and very few people being born. After that, when the aged (Old people) population die off, it will look like a rectangle, which will change our population to stationary, instead of the contracting population we have today in 2014.
In the years to come, Canada will have a much lower fertility rate. We have already stated to see a declining trend, but it will continue to decline until it is 0-1 children per women or couple. Children come with expenses which is why the number of children per women will decrease because people care about luxuries and necessities.
Canada's Future First Nations Situation
It is very impressive that 200,000 people know an ancient language but, it won't stay like that. As the years go by and into the future, more and more people will be resorting to English or French to get themselves better jobs and careers. If the First Nations want to keep their languages they should be teaching the languages to kids and new borns.

Video of Aging population Leads to More Immigrants
This video shown above shows that with aging population, more people will be immigrating for jobs that require young, talented workers.
If this happens, then qualifications wouldn't be as strict as they are now. They will all be economic class immigrants. Speaking an official language might not be expected from these types of immigrants, but it will still be a bonus as they can work with other Canadian businesses.
