Canada in 2060
By: Neil Saha
What is Canada 2060?
Where are most immigrants coming from?
In 2060 I believe most immigrants will be coming from China, India and some parts of the middle east. China and India are most likely to have a poor economy in 2060 resulting in people from these countries immigrating to Canada. These countries will be overpopulated, whereas Canada will not be as crowded due to a declining population. I feel that a lot of citizens will have immigrated from the Middle East to Canada as a result of poverty and a risk of war. In my opinion I believe that families would immigrate to Canada where there is a safer community and you feel protected when you are walking on the streets. I think most immigrants come to Canada because they would like better opportunities for their children and themselves.
Which part do most immigrants go to?

Indian Act in 2060
In Canada 2060 50% of aboriginals will be registered under the Indian Act. Many people believed that the Indian Act was fine, but only Wab Kinew believed that it should be abolished. The Indian Act is a Canadian law that is involved in matters related to Indian Status, bands and reserves. By getting rid of the Indian Act it would allow the Aboriginals to interact further with the non-aboriginals,they would be considered equal members of the society and would not be treated as just another ethnic group. I believe the Indian Act may eventually be abolished both in favor of the Indians becoming a part of the regular society and non-aboriginals so they don't feel like they are getting special treatment towards things such as taxes.
All in all I think that the future will be bright for the 2060 Canadian aboriginal population. The population of the aboriginal’s will continue to grow. Reserves may start to get over crowded due to the population rising. The birth rate for aboriginals will be higher than the Canadian birth rate due to them having a lower likeliness to survive. In Canada 2060 I think there will also be more riots, protests and war against the government to remove the Indian Act.
