Canada in 2060
Canada is a great country to live in (OF COURSE). It's clean, rich economically and very diverse. That is because we have a great immigration rate. We get a lot of immigrants every year into our country. We need more immigrants because our country's birth rate is dropping every year. People are having less babies so we need immigrants to keep our population up. We have lots of First Nations Reserves, but our relationship with the of this land is not that great. In this Smore, I'll be taking you on a journey through time of how Canada will change in 2060 based on its demography, immigration and relationship with the Natives.
By the year 2060 I predict our immigration rate will have grown by a massive amount. Due to the decrease in our birth rate and the increase in our death rate, we will need a steady amount of population. That is where immigration will come in to play. Immigration will become a big part of Canada's population.
The trend our immigration is following right now is going up. Each year we bring in new immigrants from other countries.
In the coming decades, our immigration will be rising faster because we will need new immigrants.
This is Canada's population pyramid from 2010. As it clearly states, there are way more adults than children. That is because people do not want to have children. Once all the adults in their 40's and 50's pass away, our country's death rate will be extremely high and our birth rate will be very low. This will result in a dramatic decrease of population growth.
By 2060, our population increase will have dropped drastically. Most of the adults from the Baby Boom will have either passed away or will be very old. Most of our population will be seniors or old adults [as seen in the graph below].
If our relationship with the First Nations does not improve then by 2060 it will have gotten a lot worse than it currently is. If the First Nations don't get the promises that were made in the Indian Act, then they could start becoming hostile. This would make our relationship with them a whole lot worse.
