Canada And Japan In 2040

By: Zahir Sibdhanny


Have you ever wondered what will Canada and Japan look like in the future and now? As you read this article you will learn the difference Canada and Japan are going though and what they will look like in the near future. Also, how it impacts people living in these countries and immigrating to these countries.

Canadian Immigration (2015-2040)

Canada Now (2015)

The top 3 countries immigrating to Canada- China, India, and Philippines

The 3 different immigrates that come to Canada are refugees, economic immigrates, and family class immgirates.

Ways to immigrate to Canada are though the point system, or being sponsored.

Around 250,000 immigrates come to Canada each year.

Canada In 2040

Canada's population will remain stable and will increase at a small/slow rate mainly because of Immigration to Canada.

The point system will remain the same, and they will assess you by Education, Age, Adaptability, Arranged Employment, Experience, and Language Skills.

Immigration to Canada will be close to doubling, around 400,000 or more per year.

The median age of immigrants will stay the same, maybe increase and decrease by a little amount because Canada wants younger people instead of older people to contribute to the economy because if you are close to the retiring age you can't contribute to the economy as younger people can and Canada will probably not accept you into Canada as an economic immigrant.

Canadian Demography (2015-2040)

Japans population is decreasing now and will be expected to decrease in the future. Japan has an high number of births per year and a even higher number of death per year. (birth rate lower than death rate)

Canada's population is growing at a slow rate and will be expected to increase in the future mainly because of immigration to Canada. (birth rate higher than death rate)

Japan: 2015

Pull Factors: Education, Culture, Family links, and Better Living Condition

Push Factors: Not enough jobs, Political fear, Natural Disasters, and Poor Medical Care.

Median age: 46.2

Fertility rate: 1.40 children per women

Population over 60+ : 33% of the total population

Growth rate: -40%

Natural increase: 932,474-1,287,095= -354621 or 28% (decrease)

Net migration: 0 (no data)

The population of Japan has been decreasing during the past years

It is expected that 932,474 children will be born and about 1,287,095 people will die

Every 25 seconds a person dies, in other words their are 3526 deaths in a day.

Every 34 seconds a baby is born, in other words their are 2,555 children born in a day

Canada in 2015

Pull Factors: Freedom, Education, Free health care, Welfare, High Standard Of Living, and Multicultural

Push Factors: Climate (Cold) and High Taxes

Median Age: 40.3

Fertility rate: 1.66 children per women

Population over 60+: 22% of the total population

Growth rate: 1.14 %

Natural increase: 357,274 - 277,339= 79935 natural increase

The population of Canada in the recent years has increase and decreased during the past years

Net migration: Approximately 196,362

Population growth: 79935 + 196,362 = 276,297 or 757 persons daily

Every 88 seconds a baby is born, a average of 979 births per day.

Every 114 seconds a person dies, a average of 760 deaths per day.

About 357,274 children will be born.

About 277,339 people will die.

Canada Compared To Japan In 2040

Japan in 2040

% of people over 60+: 42.4% of the total population

Push Factors: Bad economy, political fear, more tax (increasing), Natural Disasters

Pull Factors: Culture, Family Links , and More Job Opportunities

Fertility rate: The fertility rate is going to stay the same or decrease a bit, mainly because (opportunities for women) women rather have their education and a job, instead of having kids or just not ready to have kids (family planing) or don't want kids at all. So, instead of having kids, women use birth control and protection.

Median age: The median age of Japan in going to increase in 2040 compared to Japan in 2015 because of their ageing population which, is the generations that had the most births who are still alive and above 60+. Also, low birth rates contribute to the increasing median age because they are less births, so less people under 60+.

Canada in 2040

% of people over 60+: 29.9 or 30% of the total population

Push Factors: Climate (cold) and Tax (high)

Pull Factors: Better Education, Freedom, Job Opportunities, Better Economy, free health care and more.

Fertility rate: I think Canada's fertility rate is going to decrease even though their is a lot of immigration to Canada because (opportunities for women) women chose education and job opportunities rather than having children. Some women are not ready to have kids or they don't want kids. So women use birth control and protection.

Median Age: The median age of Canada is going to increase because their are a high number of people in 2015 moving to the retiring age in 2040. Also, low birth rate contribute to the increasing median age because their are less children being born, so less people are under the age of 60+. It is expected that people over 60+ now (2015) will double in the future according to statistics Canada.

To conclude, Canada and Japan are going though different stages, Canada's population is increasing and becoming more sustainable, while Japan's population is decreasing and become unsustainable and because of this each country will have a different impact on it.
