What Will Canada Be In the Future?
This Is Not What You Think It Is!
Canada's Current Status?
Reasons of This Declining Birth Rate
Population Pyramid of Canada
This graph shows how many people are nearing death and judging by the amount of young Canadians, you can see how low Canada's death rate is.
Children Mortality Comparison
Looking at this, it is obvious how much Canada has improve in terms of saving lives.
Demography Transition Graph
This shows how a small population with low amounts of technology would result with high death rate. Then as technology evolves, death rate decreases. Later, birth rate as well decreases and finally both would meet once again but at a much lower state than before.

- are those who are escaping persecution
- will be allowed into Canada no matter the condition if proven to be a real refugee
- will be supported with sponsors rather than the government
- are those who can contribute immediately to the economy by:
- -paying taxes
- -joining the work force
- make up approximately 2/3 of Canada's total population
- includes skilled workers or entrepreneurs
- are those who spouses or partners of people living in Canada
- will usually be able to enter into Canada with conditions
- this system is very rare among other country
All these options of immigration has made Canada an easy country to immigrate to. This helps Canada with its population as birth rate has been decreasing quite significantly. Canada's immigration is the one who pulls up Canada's population growth to the same level as the other country.
History Of Canada's Distribution
- when Europeans first came to, they populated in Areas near the st Lawrence river, starting Ontario and Quebec
- many first nation died due disease which meant these nomads would no longer repopulate in places the Europeans did settle
- many attempts were made to populate the west however, this resulted tragically as the west was completely untouched with any sort of civilization other than the Aboriginals
- First world war sent Canada into depression
- decreasing birth rate and immigration rate and increasing death rate along with the amount of homelessness
- a boost in immigration occurred between 1901-1911 with most families traveled west (population level=7.2 million)
- World War 2 and Great Depression leaves Canada with the lowest birth rate and immigration rate in Canadian history
- Baby boom takes place after the war increases birth rate all over Canada
- Immigration increases as the population and economy picks itself up
What Does This Mean?
At first Canada was in fact a terrible place to live. Being next to US worsen things even more as they attracted most of the emigrants. As a new country, Canada faced many economical obstacles, leaving many people jobless. Most of those immigrants could not afford to sustain their families or start the new life they always wanted. Canada was also much harder to cultivate which led to lack of food while US was filled with bountiful harvests.
the beginning of WW 1 decreased Canada's immigration rate almost completely. Even the after affects of the war affected Canada. After the war, economy was nearly dead, when it crashed, the great depression began. This as well lowered Canada's immigration and more people started to leave.
Finally things are looking up for Canada. The Baby Boom starts, the economy is rising drastically and people are finally immigrating to Canada. emigration is at its lowest and many lives are getting a new chance. Canada's population is finally on a steady rise.
First Nation are looked down upon by society and are often considered as savages. When people think of first nations, they think of people wearing feathers and animal skin however this has been outdated for a long time. First nations often live with society, but the majority live on reserves in poverty and in terrible living areas. Most first nations of reserves live in broken down houses which are barely suitable for inhabitants. The amount of funds first nations receive are far too little for the amount of people living in those areas.
How Did It Get This Bad?
First nation condition wasn't always bad. When the Europeans first arrived at Canada, the aboriginals welcomed them and taught them to live in the harsh winter of Canada. They bond between each other were very strong however, when the first nations realized that the European were interrupting their way of life, they sent a request for a piece of land which would not be disturb. The Europeans agreed, but instead of giving them what they promised, they gave them the worst places of habitation. They forced the youth of the first nations to go to Residential school where they severed their connection to their culture completely. They did this by abducting them from their parents and keeping them in a school far from any civilization. They would be forced to speak English and only English, they would be able to wear their traditional clothing, they would be forced to act like a European and learned what they wanted them to learn. Most of these schools were not funded with enough money which led to mal nutrition.
Where Does This All Add Up?
- Decreasing birth rate
- Decreasing death rate
- successful immigration
- stages of emigration
- first nation condition
Canada's State in the Year 2060
- an extremely successful immigration
- low emigration rate
- decreasing birth rate
- decreasing death rate
If these aspect continues as it is right now, Canada will be left with a very high Net Migration rate. This is because of the fact that our natural increase rate would actually be decreasing, meaning Canada would have to rely even more on it immigration rather than its birth rate. This result with Canada lowering its immigration standards which would allow more people into the country however, many of these people would not have the requirements Canada would need. If Canada lowers its standards, it would mean less valuable people would be allow to immigrate into Canada. But to fully see how people would immigrate to Canada, we have to see how many people would emigrate out of other countries.
