Canada in 2060
By: Nader. Nassereddine
Canada's point system will dramatically change over the years. Instead of focusing on language ability, it will be mostly on experience with work ethics. Since Canada's population in 2060 will be growing much older, there will be no citizens working in the job fields. So if more people from all over the world with skilled working abilities and have a good education immigrate to Canada, Canada's economy will become much more sustainable than usual.

Where Immigrants Are Coming From:
During the year 2060 in Canada, most immigrants will becoming from China, India, and some parts of the Middle east. Most immigrants will immigrate to Canada from China and India because of over populated despite their economy being stronger than Canada's. If this is the case, then some of these citizens will immigrate to Canada where it's not crowded. In today's time period, some parts of the Middle East are experiencing poverty and risk of life in war. It is said that this will keep going. I believe most families would want to immigrate out of the country where they feel safe, and not threatened. But mostly, to live a better life for themselves and for their kids.

Migrate to Canada where it isn't overpopulated.
Migrate to Canada where they can live in a more peaceful society.
Migrate to Canada where they feel safe and start over a new life.
Canada's economy in 2060 will have a dramatic impact in comparison to what it was before. It is said Canada's economy will go down due to population declining which means, less job opportunities available. This is a big deficit to Canada, without jobs available the economy cannot promise its citizens any support to help them live better lives. In 2060, China will have a viable economy than any other in the world, with many employment opportunities. If this is the case, most Canadian citizens would want to move to China if they want a better job and earn a high salary that helps keep their families from living in poverty.

Currently, Canada is in stage 4 in the Demographic transition model. By the year 2060 Canada will be in stage 5 because, population will grow much older than it was from before. Thus explaining the chance of decline over time. Pollution occurs causing health issues due to many people using cars so death rate will increase due to cities being crowded (like Toronto). Once more people get sick, hospitals will be filled with many sick patients. Birth rate will decrease due to many people realizing kids are too expensive to take care of and cost of living is too high.
Since Canada in 2060 will be in stage 5 on the demographic transition model, birth rate will eventually decrease over time due to many parents having fewer kids. Having many kids are too expensive to take care of; parents have to pay for health care so that their kids are cured from diseases that are currently spreading throughout the world. School and education also need to be paid for in order for them to get a job in the future, food to keep children healthy instead of being in starvation, pre-school/daycare expenses when both parents have jobs and can't stay home for their kids. As well as house expenses like the water bill, if too many people are living in one house and are taking a shower, then the water bill will be expensive.

Low Birth Rate
Parents decide to have fewer kids.
Cost of living and family expenses were considered a factor of low birth rate.
Both parents would have jobs, and it would be too hard to multitask; working while taking care of their children.
Canada's current population has been aging for quite awhile and soon there will be an increase in the mortality rate by 2060. Canada will soon experience more citizens in need of help. If there are more patients that need to be treated in hospitals than average, the health care expenses will increase and people could not afford it. Without medical treatment or care, people will have nothing to help cure them. Thus explaining why the mortality rate would be high.

High Mortality Rate
The Baby Boom generation would eventually would die.
Health Care Too Expensive
The cost for health care would be too overpriced.
Not enough nurses or doctors available to help out those who are ill.

The relationship with Canada and the FNMI will be much stronger in 2060 because, the population of Aboriginals is six times more than non-Aboriginals. The population in Canada during 2060 will decrease, so if Aboriginal citizens begin to migrate to Canada, their population will increase. As well, Canada treats people with respect and equality, so if Canada begins to discriminate Aboriginals for who they are, it would set an awful image to Canada's reputation as a country.
Aboriginal population is currently six times of Canada's non-Aboriginal population. In 2060, the birth rate of Aboriginal children will most likely increase since half of the Aboriginal population is young or ages between 0-25 years. Death rate in the future will increase, so this means most adult Aboriginals will have a high mortality rate due to health care being to expensive in Canada. If the Aboriginal population begin to migrate to Canada, they can expand the population, by increasing the country's growth rate, creating more job employment's with a good education.
(Statistics Canada - May 5th 2013)
Since the size and growth rate of Aboriginal population is larger than Canada's population, than this can help the country's economy in 2060. Most Aboriginals have a good education, so this is helpful in a way to improve job opportunities that help Canada's economy to be much more stronger. In addition, Aboriginals have a very young population, meaning whatever job position they currently are will mostly likely last longer. This way it helps keep retired citizens out of the way because, those particular citizens affect the economy in a big way.

Aboriginal Population will continue to increase, and will expand and help grow our growth rate in Canada.
Canada is filled with much diversity, and respects others cultures.
Aboriginal education will help fill in all the loss job opportunities in Canada. Therefore, will help our economy to be more stronger and more developed.
Life is constantly leading us to experience change, and Canada will challenge us to change in the next 45 years. Canada will experience adversities leading to 2060. Population may have aged over time, and the economy may be struggling with job losses. We may never be able to predict what will happen in the future, but all we can do is reinforce the Canadian values and Canadian spirit, and know that Canada will always find a way to persevere through whatever challenges the future may bring on.
