Canada 2060 Assignment
By: Noor Ali
In the most recent data of Canada's immigration most of Canada's immigrants come from Asia including the Middle East 60 per cent of Canada's immigration comes from there. China is first with 13 per cent of immigrants from there, India is second with 10 per cent, Philippines is third with 6 per cent, Pakistan is fourth with 4 per cent. Majority of immigrants move to one of these territories Ontario, BC, Quebec and Alberta. Immigrants like to move into high employment urban areas. Immigration rate is 250,000 people per year. Immigrants working age is 25-54 the majority of people who immigrate to Canada are of working age. Canada's net migration rate is 5.66 migrants per 1000 people.
Canada is seeing a shortage of professions such as doctors, engineers and nurses. Employees are having difficulty taking over because so many people are retiring. That is why Canada wants immigrants with profession to come to Canada so they can takeover.
Canada's immigration will definitely change in 2060. People will immigrate to Canada from underdeveloped countries like India, Pakistan and Africa and of course the other under developed countries too. People will want to come to Canada for the same push and pull factors of 2016 ;lack of jobs, education and more. People will probably want to move where their is is less job competition so they can get settled easily, places like Yukon, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
I think the population will go way down because of the baby boomers retiring and their kids retiring aka (Mrs Breen). But the high immigration rate will give our population a boost. Our dependency load will increase as well. I think our economy profit will get lower but that will give many job opportunities because of how many people are retiring.
There are 851,560 First nations representing 60% of Aboriginal population. First nations make up 2.6% of Canada's population. Most of them used to live in Ontario and the western provinces but they make up the largest population in Northwest Territories, Manitoba, Saskatchewan.
Aboriginal and First Nations make up a lot of Canada's population they have higher birth rates and high death rates I think they will help increase our population to economic standards. I hope the Indian act is over by then.
