Where is Canada's current state
How will Canada be like in 2060?
Immigration has always been one of the most important factor in Canada's population. There are a lot of people who have contributed to the economy and continue to do so. Canada has also allowed people to come from many different countries around the world. This is what makes Canada such a diverse place because there are people here from all origins. These immigrants have to go through a very tough and long process in order to come here and be willing to contribute. Canada would not be one of the best countries if these immigrants didn't do the jobs that have such high expectations and conditions. I will now classify the immigrants in groups in which most of them come to Canada for.
-Reuniting families (66,659- 25.6%)
- Contributing to economic development immigrants ( 165,088- 8.9%)
- Other ( 5,367- 2.1%)
Where do most of these immigrants plan to stay?
When you look back at Canada you think about a well developed country therefore our immigration is pretty high. A lot of these immigrants come from developing countries such as India or Philippines, but this will change as countries will have enough in the bag to be fully developed. When these countries develop and there are enough education and food supplies for the country to manage its citizens people will have no reason to come to Canada. This will cause a huge boom in immigration rate as there will be no pull or push factor for people to leave there home nation. In the coming future we will have to look into investing even more in our technology so Canada has something that no other country has.
By doing this its a big positive as people will continue to immigrate to Canada and our economy will not suffer, because most immigrants are coming to work. Employment rate will be at high which if full of advantages for Canada.
Demographics are a key component when we think about our population in general. Without them we cannot predict what can transpire in the future to countries like Canada .
To track down more, demographers use collected data to predict and take an estimate on how a country will change in the future. This is possible by looking at past events as well as any trends between other countries.
How can we even out this population?
If we need to even this population, looking towards like expectancy is about 80. It will approximately take at least 30 years until most of them die. But how is Canada going to pass through 30 years of constant economic disappointment? the only way for our population to even out faster is by immigrants. Immigration has always been vey big in Canada , though we cannot always rely on it. As the future approaches people will have less push factors to move to Canada. As our current population is dropping, every person will have to pay increasing taxes which leads to not such a great pull factor after all. What will Canada take as its future steps? will the government take more money? well due to the fact that our population is growing , this cant help. Therefore we must consider our immigration which will help us through these tough years.
Around Canada there are about 617 first nation communities, meaning there are 50 nations of specific cultural groups with 50 aboriginal languages. 1.4 million have identified themselves as aboriginals this is 4 % of Canada's population. Out of that 4%,50% are registered Indian ( Status Indians), 30% metis, 15% are non status Indians and finally 4% are inuit. Mostly half of all aboriginals live in more urban centres and the other half still live in reserves. In the future first nations would want to gain more land to practice their traditions and beliefs together. The only way that more economic development for every one is only by settling a partnership and replacing the Indian act with a better set of government rules.
To sum up, immigration, demography and aboriginals will affect our population in the coming future. By 2060 Canada will seek more new immigrants to fill up our empty spots, hopefully there will be more job opportunities for people coming in .Demographically, since the population will decrease Canada will have to suffer from horrible taxes and increase in deaths. Lastly, our first nations will be wanting to gain more land for each other to practice their tradition and cultures as families. To end off , these three very important issues will describe how Canada will look ahead of its future.
