Canada is the world’s second-largest country (9,976,140 km2),The country is protected by the world’s longest coastline. Distances in Canada can be far. More than 50 percent of Canada’s land is blanketed with rich forest ranges, accounting for 10 percent of the world’s remaining forests and 20 percent of the world’s remaining wilderness areas. Canada is made up of ten provinces and three territories. The provinces from west to east are British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and furthest east, the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Jamaica is one of the most diverse and colorful countries in the Caribbean. Jamaica is an island in the West Indies, 90 mi (145 km) south of Cuba and 100 mi (161 km) west of Haiti. It is a little smaller than Connecticut. The island is made up of coastal lowlands, a limestone plateau, and the Blue Mountains, a group of volcanic hills, in the east.

Current immigration Of Canada

Canada will welcome between 240,000 and 265,000 new permanent residents who will contribute to the Canadian economy. The 2014 Immigration Levels Plan reinforces the Government of Canada’s commitment to jobs and economic growth. By increasing our immigration targets for 2014, we are working to address labour market needs and providing Canadian employers with the skilled workforce they need.

Graph comparism

Between the both graphs Jamaica has a higher birth rate than Canada. Jamaica population is higher than Canada between the age groups 0 to 34 in both male and females. Jamaica population starts decreasing after the age group 34 tremendously because of diseases. Canada’s population was balanced and had a higher percentages of adults than Jamaica’s. Canada’s population is stag 4 because the population is high. Jamaica is stage 3 because the country is poor and the population is growing too rapidly.

Population pyramid of Canada

Canada population pyramid looks equal between the male and females population. In the population pyramid the females have a higher life expectancy than the males. The age groups look balanced between the males ad females.

Population pyramid of jamaica

In the population pyramid of Jamaica you can see that there is a really high birth rate population. The population only grows until the age group of 0 to 19 for both male and females. After that the population starts decreasing in large amounts for both male and female. This is because emigration and disease caused the rate of population growth to fall to very low levels.

Demography Sastcs

Canada Population density-3.73 per sq.km


Population- 35.16 million

net migration-5.66 per 1000

birth rate-1.61

death rate-8.31


Jamaica population density-251

Population-2.71 million

net migration-3.56 per 1000

birth rate-18.41 per 1000

death rate-6.67

Canada and Jamaica Demography Comparism

The most difference between both countries are the population.You could see the population differences from both countries. Jamaica has a high death rate and Canada has a low death rate than Jamaica. This is because Jamaica has a lot of disease making the people sick. Also because Jamaica is poor country and t has a lot of few supplies to survive. Jamaica doesn't have good health care making people die. In Canada there s good health care making people living over the age 100.

Prediction For 2050

I predict for 2050 that the population will continue to grow and reach 9.6 billion. I think that the death rate will decrease because health care will get more advanced and better over the year. The birth rate will decrease because technology will get more advanced making it too expensive for parents to handle. I think the population ageing will continue to grow but in a slow pace. In my opinion if they don’t stop the population the environment will be hard to manage and they will be a lot of pollution making the environment garbage.
