Canada 2060

Learn about Canada in 2060!


This smore will be about what Canada will look like in 2060. We will talk about immigration trends, population trends, and about the First Nations.

Immigration Trends 1

Aging population: Canada needs more workers to replace every senior, because they are retiring, and we need people to replace them.

In 2036, there will be 2.3 people at working age to replace each senior, and we need much more than that.

We need skilled workers to immigrate here to help each senior.

Immigration Trends 2

Immigration growth: Canada receives many immigrants and half of those immigrants are refugees, or relatives of other Canadian citizens.

Statistics show that every year, Canada will get 400,000 new immigrants, and we hope that those immigrants will be skilled workers to replace the seniors retiring.

Key Prediction for Immigration Trends in 2060

Since there are a lot of immigrants immigrating to Canada each year, but half of those will be refugees or relatives or of other citizens, I think that there will be a good number of skilled workers immigrating because we have a lot of jobs available, even though they are nurses and construction workers.

Population Trends 1

Growth rate: growth rate depends on the population growth, and birth rate.

Population grew slowly in Canada when people started immigrating, it gradually started to grow because the death rate started to decrease, and the birth rate started increasing. According to facts, and research, Canada's population will increase to about 8500 million people.

Population Trends 2

Death rate: death rate is usually cause by life extencency, and child mortality.

Life extencency for males is 67 years and for females is 69 years.

The child mortality rate is 52 per thousand births for males, and 61.5 per thousand births for females.

Key Predictions for Population Trends in 2060

I think Canada's population will increase by a big number by 2060 because even though we have more birth control, we also have more cures to deaths, so we can help people that are sick. That will result in a higher population, and since technology is getting better and better, there will be a higher chance of people living longer.

First Nations, Metis & Inuit Trends 1

Aboriginal kids and adults have to face many problems compared to normal Canadians. They got married and pregnant at an early age, usually around high school. That prevented them to finish their education due to their kids. Their parents would be alcoholics, so they had to compromise with many things, to learn how to live their lives properly.

First Nations, Metis & Inuit Trends 2

Aboriginals went to residential schools, and they weren't as easy to them as our schools are to us. Schools involved sexual abuse, physical abuse, mental harm, shaving the students' heads off, and they prevented them from speaking any language, they demanded on English. That made it hard for the aboriginals to learn, and they had to sacrifice a lot to do so.

Key Prediction for FMNI trends in 2060

I think that by 2060, the aboriginals will be more comfortable around us, because we have already started to let them join in on some of our activities such as the 2010 Olympics where they were treated like they were part of Canada.


In conclusion, I think Canada will be a much better looking country in the forms of Immigration trends, Population trends, and the First Nations, Metis, and Inuits (FMNI).
