Where is Canada's current state

How will Canada be like in 2060?

Introuduction

Canada is the second largest country in terms of our land. We don't exactly have a very big population as it is only 38.83 million, that my seem a large number but we are very low in comparison to other countries. Population is a very important factor affecting our economy and standards of living. Canada must know how to control it so will not put a negative impact on us in the future . Today we will be looking at three important factors that influences of our country. Firstly the immigrants that come to this country, where majority of them come from and what type of class they have. Second, the demography of Canada so how are country looks like right now in terms of numbers. Lastly, the aboriginal community how they are taken care of and what their status is. In this smore we will predict what Canada's future will be like and how Canada will maintain a stable population .

Current immigration

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%)

An extremely big portion of immigrants coming to Canada are economic citizens who will contribute to the economy. Immigrants make up about 20.6% or our total population. When you refer to it, it seems like a small number but with Canada's low population its no so small after all. Immigrants of the modern day come from many parts of the world. In Canada, specifically the GTA area you will find a lot of diversity mostly from the Asia continent. Many of these countries includes Philippines, India, China and Pakistan.

Where do most of these immigrants plan to stay?

Now where do these immigrants settle? Well its pretty obvious they spread in the different provinces of Canada but as you might know the province of Ontario takes almost half of all those immigrants. My understanding is the reason of big cities and jobs Ontario has to offer, the capital of our country is located there too. Ontario is no dought one the best places to live with up to date high technology that everyone loves. Apart from that every one of our provinces gets immigrants like Quebec, Alberta, and British Columbia exactly after Ontario. Majority of our coming immigrants go to the most developed and advanced provinces, an example Ontario. This should be a message for the Canadian government that if all provinces were highly developed we would not have a lack of immigrants.

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

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.

As you can see this is Canada's statistics in the year 2010. With our population increasing slowly , not a lot has changed this then. Most of our population is now at that age due to the baby boom. Even though, as they progress to be older our economy will suffer. As you get older you are in need for someone to take care of you as well as more health care benefits. The government pays for all the medial assistance we get but unfortunately this money is taken from the taxes we pay. As they age they will require extra money which will be taken from the smaller youth population remaining.

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.

Canada's demographic and geographic shift

Aboriginals

Back in Canada history the first nations owned Canadian land meaning there was no fight over it, Europeans came and settled also took everything from them and made Canada as us it is today. Aboriginals are divided in non status and status Indians. Non status Indians are just like people living around us today, they pay taxes just like the rest of us do also they have the same rights as us. Status Indians, on the other hand are registered under the Indian act. They live away in private reserves and practice their culture among each other. Canada negotiates land claims and provides social services agreements which help first nations settle much more peacefully.

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.

Conclusion

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.
