Immigration in Canada

People who immigrate to places are people who move permanently to a country other than one's native country. Canada accepts about 250,000 immigrants each year. the criteria that Canada uses to determine is someone can immigrate to Canada is by checking for economic immigrants, family immigrants and refugees. By 2040, if Canada keeps using this criteria, and accepting around this same amount of immigrants each year, by 2040, Canada would have accepted approximately 6,500,000 immigrants into Canada in the next 26 years.



At one senior to eight working-age persons, the proportion of seniors in Canada was less than in many other industrialized countries as this century commenced. In the following decades, the Canadian population will age more rapidly as baby boomers (those born in the two decades after World War II ) reach the age of 65 and become seniors. By 2026, some 8 million Canadians, one person in every five, will be 65 years or older. By 2050, seniors may number 10 million, overall approximately 25 percent of the projected population.

Population of Canada in 2050

By 2050, Canada’s population is expected to reach 40 million give or take 5 million. Between now and then, population growth will have slowed due to continued low fertility levels, a measure of the number of children women have over their childbearing years. The population could level off at 35 million if the present low birthrate is not offset by a high rate of immigration.
