Immigration in Canada Today
What will Immigration be like by 2060?
Immigration is Canada's main method of population growth, but will immigration still exist by 2060? Well.... lets try to predict the population in the future. By 2060, the baby boomers will most likely not be here, and as people start to get more educated, family sizes start to decrease. If the birth rate is relatively close to what it is today, according to statistics Canada, immigration will be responsible for around 80% of Canada's population growth. I think that by 2060, immigration will mostly be from African countries. Today we don't have a lot of immigrants coming from Africa, instead they come from many Asian countries. As of right now, many sub-Saharan countries in Africa are in severe poverty, and are at the point were they are looking for shoes and food to eat. By 2060, if we look at the global population growth box by box, hopefully countries in Africa, will be able to make it to the bicycle or electric car stage, and have more education opportunities.
By 2060, I think that Canada will start to accept more immigrants than they do today. I also think that since many Canadians pursue educational opportunities for a long period of time, that by 2060 there will already be a lot skilled workers in Canada. Therefore I think that Canada might not accept a lot of Skilled workers from other countries, as they're might already be a lot in Canada by 2060. By 2060, Canada may also become an even more multi-cultural and diverse country, as the number of immigrants from around the world increases.
Demography of Canada Today
In Canada, the birth rate is pretty low. The average number of children per women is 2.0, but in Canada, it's somewhere around 1.67 Children per women. As people become more educated, and start to work more, they decide to keep their families smaller. As of 2009 the death rate was 7.1/1000. When you watch the video below, It mentions that the working age group is the fastest growing. The fastest growing age group in that category is people aged 60-64, the baby boomers. When we look at the population pyramid, you may notice that the death rate is lower than the birth rate, and the birth rate is higher. This is due to the fact that our population Is slowly growing.
How will the Demographics of Canada change by 2060?
If we look at Canada's natural increase rate, it is currently 0.76 per each year. Using this rate, I think that by 2060 the population will increase to around 47 million. By 2060, Canada will heavily rely on immigration, due to this there will be more people arriving into the country, many may also decide to have families. Due to this our birth rate will also increase, as many families may decide to have children. If you watch the video above it mentions that by 2061 the number of people aged 100+ will rise. It also mentions that population ageing will accelerate in the coming years as the baby boom generation reaches the age of 65+. By 2060, I think we will have a huge population of seniors, giving us a low death rate and high life expectancy.
