Canada 2060

Our Future, Strong and Free?

Introduction

Ever wondered what the future might be for such a country like Canada? What would life be for humans living in that country? Would more people come or leave Canada? How would the economy be like? Will the country be too over populated? Would immigration still be a part of Canada? All sorts of questions like these arise in your head. Many experts claim that population will decrease in the next few years, some say that overpopulation will become a problem and others debate that jobs will decrease in the future. Of course these are all speculations or theories on Canada, but what if all of this is true? I too wish to know how the future will be like, that is why I have gathered enough information to layout of just what how our country will look like in the next forty- five years.

Immigration?

Immigration has been a main part of Canada and how she has formed to the country that we see today. In the begging, people from Europe came to Canada for expansion of land, some from the thirteen colonies as loyalists and now people across the globe come to Canada for all sorts of reasons.


Almost two thirds of the country's population is made from immigration. Some people are immigrated because of their high education and can enter Canada's economy. These people are called economic immigrants. These people can work in the Canadian economy and provide more profit for Canada. Most of Canadian immigrants arrive from this stage of immigration, which is family immigration. This is the stage of immigration for families can come and live with their separated families. The third stage or category of immigration is refugee immigration. This where people from a certain country arrive to seek protection and security to protect themselves from their country's conflicts.

Demography?

Demography is the study of the characteristics of human population in a country. This means that it looks at all aspects of a countries population; such as the size of the population, growth, density, distribution, birth and death rates. Canada's demography is a non-stop, changing graph that continues to go up and down. It plays a major part in how Canada looks today.

First nations?

First Nations were the first people to be in Canada, before the Europeans. They played a major on Canadian history, as well as its demography. They are the forgotten people who wish to redeem themselves and want a change in today's Canada and wish to be treated as equals in Canada.

So Whats Going On?

The current Immigration rate in Canada is about Two hundred and fifty thousand each year, or almost one percent of our population. Most of these people arrive as economic immigrants, the rest as family immigrants and refugees. The demographic state of Canada is moving down to a steady rate, both birth and death rates. The first Nations status right now is that they want to become a part of Canada once again, like they were five hundred years ago, and wish to move along with the Canadian people and government. And why is this information important to how Canada will look in 2060? Well it is, as it explains the current information of Canada and also give us look at how it will look in the next few years along with the changes of immigration, its demography and how it will effect the first nations people.

Immigration 2060

Immigration has been a main part of Canada. As I mentioned this earlier, about two hundred and fifty thousand people immigrate to Canada, making up one percent of our total population. Most immigrants arrive in the economic class. How does relate to Canada in 2060? It relates because, by then, Canada's economy will be booming. The amount of immigrants each year will be lowered and there will be a change in the population itself.


In 2060, Canada will reduce the amount of immigration per year and will not pay too much attention towards it. One reason for this is because of its economy. By 2060, Canada's economy will be at the top of its game. This is because of all the economic immigrants that arrived and settled in Canada are boosting and keeping the economy at a high peak. This means that Canada won't need anymore people coming and will reduce the amount from how it is in 2014.


This will also impact in a very religious and cultural way. The most amount of economic immigrants come from either China, India or The Philippines. This means that most of Canada will be populated by these people and means that more of their culture and background will be supported compared to other religions and they would be favored more than others. This is both a push and pull factor because if your religion is not that well recognized, then why bother to go their? People will look at you as an outsider and will not treat you well. This is a pull factor as well because if more of your people are in a certain area, you will most likely want to join them and that means you can be with more people that you know.


Another reason for why Canada will not pay attention to immigration in 2060 is because of the population. The population by then will stabilize in both birth and death rate, meaning that Canada will have a good, well developed demography and won't be in need of immigrants to further increase the population.

Demography 2060

Demography has played a large part in the history of Canada. Currently, Canada's demography is slowly decreasing, and both rates are evening out to a steady and slow progression. From the current rate right now, Canada's rate for any change demographically, won't be happening, and there are many reasons towards this theory, such as the baby boomers deaths and the change in the world that will keep Canada's demographic the same in 2060.


One reason for why the demographic state will not change is because of the change in society itself. The reason for why the rate won't change is because of the education, which has changed the perspective of people. every country has education. Because of Education the world has moved and still continues to move ahead. We have hospitals that offer the right medication and treatment, so the death rate has decreased. Countries have economies and trade goods with each other, while creating more innovative ideas that will brighten our future. Women now have equal rights as men do and can get jobs as well. This means that people don't need to worry like they used to 200 years ago. They don't need to worry about coming into new land, and settling in a proper place where their is a lot of sunshine and they don't have to worry about their child dying from horrible diseases.


Another reason for why the demography won't change is because of the death of the baby boomers. Even though the death of these people will impact Canada's birth rate will just stabilize the amount of people who die. Prof. Hans Rosling also commented on the worlds population and how it will rise through the years. He stated that in the next few years, the world population will continue to grow. What does this mean for Canada? That in the next few years the population will not change as drastically as it did after the second world war, and that Canada's demographic chart in 2060 will not have any effect on its birth and death rate.

First Nations 2060

The first nations were the first people in Canada, even before the European settlers. But they have been long forgotten as a race and are willing to make a difference in today's world. But how will they be in 2060? In 2060, first nation communities will be recognized people and a race yet again.

the reason for this is that the Government will have time to give back what the took from the Indians because the government then would have a strong economy and will be able to pay attention to their problems more.

Conclusion

In conclusion, Canada will have both change and continuity. Immigration will have a change in the way it works, the demographic status will remain the same and the First nations will get what they want. Canada will have a strong economy, stable birth and death rate and the first nations will be recognized.
