Canada 2060 Assignment
What will Canada look like in 2060?
People choose to immigrate to Canada for different beneficial reasons. Some of the reasons are many job opportunities for experienced workers. Citizens getting free health care and education. Also freedom and diversity taking a huge role for immigrants coming to Canada.
Immigration have both benefit for Canada population and immigrants. Canada needed to accept immigrants to cover for jobs areas that needed to be filled and replace aging citizens with young experienced workers. To the fact Canada population is shrinking and employers having difficulty fulfilling high demand jobs.Canada accepting most of its immigrants from all over Asia and still to this day accepting more. Some of the top countries immigrating to Canada's are from China, United States and Pakistan and we possibly expect more in the future. As studies shows, immigrants as a group has been better than Canada from the past years.
Push factors for immigrants that forced them to come to Canada are ex. threat of war, poverty, no jobs, no education, no healthcare and more. According to facts cited from http://www.canadafaq.ca/ many immigrants coming to Canada are from Asia. About 79% of the immigrants came from Asia, 11% coming from Europe, 6% coming from America and only 4% coming from Africa. All immigrants, 23% family class, 63% economic immigrants, 11% refugees and 3% others. Also 7 out of 10 decided to settle in either Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver. Most of these immigrants usually settled in these 3 areas are usually because it is nearest from country they are coming from, big cities or warm climate.
In 2060, I predict that our birth rate will be declining since women are not deciding to have children. Which means that we do not have enough populations to replace ourselves for the future generations. Also I figure that our immigration rate will soon double and later we will still have immigrants coming from Asia, since in the present 79% of immigrants are coming to Canada.
Demography of Canada
Later, the growth in the number of death would decline, marking the end of baby boomers. As the generation of baby boomers will have nearly disappeared from the Canadian population. The youngest of the group born in 1965 will be turning 96 years as baby boomers will have greatly formed into Canada's demographic landscape. Also, if the intensity of pregnancy is controlled nonstop, the numbers of birth depends on changes in the numbers of women of birth age. The numbers increasing to start the projection in the medium and high growth. Next, the numbers of births tend to balance before starting its increase again. However it is most importantly to not disrespect the impact of immigration because a large amount of them are on their birth age which will have a positive outcome on the numbers.
First Nations, Metis and Inuit
Aboriginals peoples can be considered as 3 region: First Nations, Inuit and Metis. They have maintain to shape the land into the country we have today.
Compared to the overall Canadian population the First Nations population are younger and growing at a faster rate. While the predictions indicate that these populations will continue to have a high fertility and growth rate than Canadian rate in the near future and over the years rates will start to decrease due to decline in fertility and larger proportion will age. They are increasing more than the non-native population of Canada. Seen below is the graph of aboriginal compare to the non-aboriginal from https://www.aadnc-aandc.gc.ca/, we can see that there are less people aging compare to the non aboriginal community and a greater amount of children in the first nations group than the non aboriginal. Although to the fact that the aboriginal population having a lower life expectancy, which leads to its population dying out much rapidly than the non aboriginal population.
How will my life being different than the life my parents currently have in Canada?
