Canada in 2060
By : JAZA ZAFAR
Current Status of Canada
Which part do most immigrants go to ??
The major source of Canada's population immigrates to Canada, this will carry on to become a tradition until 2060. Canada 2060 will have a very high net migration rate because many people will be entering and few will be leaving. By 2060 Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia will become overpopulated countries. This is because most immigrants go to these province causing causing the province to end up in this situation. In conclusion I feel Canada 2060 will be a successful country and will continue to grow.
By 2060 families in Canada will choose to have smaller families for many reasons. The expenses per family will decrease tremendously as they won't have to pay for a child's education, food, clothing and healthcare. Families with more than 2 children will have financial constraints such as no pay with maternity leave and only 6% of companies offering flexible schedules for pregnant women. By 2060, Canada's population will have decreased massively due to smaller families.
By 2060 Canada will have an estimated population between 40 and 63 million people. The Baby Boomer population will have been retired and some of them may have even passed away. As a result of this Canada's population will be decreasing and aging by the year 2060. More of the population will be aging in Canada, for this the government will have to pay extra money to help support the baby boomers in retirement. The birth rate will be lower than the death rate causing a decline in Canada's 2060 population. I think Canada's population will have decreased by a lot by 2060 and this will cause problems in Canada's demographic model.
FIRST NATIONS, METIS & INUIT TRENDS
The Relationship with Canadians
The future of the First Nations, Metis and the Inuit people will be different in 2060 for the following three main reasons:
- their rights will be given back to them and they will be treated the same as a non-aboriginal
- they will increase in population so much that they will be more in number than the number of Canadians
- their relationships with Canadians and non-aboriginals will strengthen
