Canada in 2060
- Demand in Canada for their skill
- Can speak English or French
- Pre-arranged job offer
Types of immigrants
There are 3 different types of immigrants in Canada.
- Economic immigrants who are authorized based on what they can contribute to Canada's economy.
- 2/3 of immigrants are economic immigrants
Family Class Immigrants:
- Canada also welcomes family class immigrants who are the spouses or partners of people already residing in Canada, or children, parents and grandparents.
- 1/3 of immigrants are family class
- Canada accepts refugees who are allowed into Canada for safety if they are at threat in their home country.
- 1/10 of immigrants are refugees
Where Do Most immigrants come from? And why?
Not only, would Canada need immigrants to fill in for mandatory skills needed, they would need them to support the population. This is because since most of Canada's population is the baby boomer generation, when these people pass away, Canada would have a huge decline in population and would rely heavily on immigrants to support the population.
Push and Pull Factors in 2060
These are some factors that may cause people to want to immigrate or to emigrate from Canada in 2060.
- Job availability
- Health Care
- Higher taxes
Where will new immigrants live?
Death Rate: 8/1000
Natural Increase: 2/1000
Dependency Ratio: 46/100
Net Migration: 5.65/1000
Total Population Growth: 0.78%
Overall, Canada's birth and death rate are almost the same.
Why is the birth rate so low?
- Easily Accessible birth control
- Children are expensive
- No need for large families in modern society
Also, dependency ratio will increase. This is because in 2060, Canada will have an older population and health care for elderly people costs more than it costs for education for kids. By having a older population it will put stress on the government for the budget of retirement facilities, pensions and medical care. They will also have fewer workers to pay the taxes. So as I stated before, they would have to increase tax prices to overcome this.
First Nations Currently
Who are they?
- First Nations
They are all descendants of the people who first arrived in Canada.
- Canada's Aboriginal population has a higher birth rate than non-Aboriginals. This is because Aboriginal women have a higher fertility rate compared to other Canadian women.
- Median age of Aboriginal people is 28 years, whereas median age of non-Aboriginal people is 40 years
- There are over 1,400,000 Aboriginals in Canada
- Aboriginals make up 4.3% of Canada's population
