Transcript of Canada In 2050

This assignment will highlight the key changes that will impact Canada's population over the next 37 years.It will talk about 3 types of trends for immigrants, aboriginals and the general Canadian Population.
Immigrant Population
-According to statistics Canada,immigration represents close to 70% of current population growth, up dramatically from
under 20% in 1976

General Population
Trend #1
In 2013 the birth rate (383,822) is much
higher than the death rate (253,241)
What challenges will the aboriginals face in the future?
How will Canada's immigration shape Canadian
society in the future?
Within 25 years, immigration will be the only
source of net population growth factor, as
deaths may outnumber births. In 2050 Canada's
economy should grow incredibly with the amount
of skilled immigrants coming in our country.
Canada's Population In 2050
What challenges will Canada face as
its population changes in the future?
Canada is estimated to have a population
of approximately 40 million people in
2050. If our immigration does not increase
in the future our population can decrease
more and more. Another problem is our
cities becoming overcrowded, if we do not
expand our cities enough. This can be
a problem because overcrowding can be a
push factor for some people which can
have a negative impact on our population in the long run.

Within the aboriginal population youths 15 years and older in the aboriginal population of Canada 31% have been informed that they have
a chronic health problem.

Canada's Aboriginals
Trend # 2
Diabetes and other illnesses affects 6% of Aboriginal adults, compared with 2% of all Canadian adults. This is mainly a problem because of the lack of effective medical care.
Trend #3
Compared to the general Canadian population,specific native populations have an increased risk of death from alcoholism, homicide, suicide and pneumonia by 10%
Poverty is a growing issue in aboriginal reserves. The natives set themselves up for the future when it comes to medical care and their economy. If the first nations don't attend school they won't have the education to take care of their ancestors in the future. Meaning, their economy will not rise and the chances of a higher death rate is possible. Another possible challenge is getting their land taken away by the government due to immigration and a possible increase in our countries birth rate.
That being said, the health care in reserves are very poor and the 31% of aboriginals may not be treated, taking in appreciation that Canadian aboriginal people die earlier than their fellow Canadians on average, the aboriginals now may not live as long if their health remains untreated. In the future chronic illnesses can be the cause to many aboriginals deaths.
Knowing that there is a big adult population
currently living in the reserves, the child
population can rise in the future. This can also
mean that the adult population within the
next couple years can decrease due too these illnesses. The children born in the future can possibly be born with illnesses as it may be in their genies. This can shorten the life span of the child population in the future, depending on how bad the illnesses are. But any minor illness can become severe if not treated.
An increase in the death rate can lower the overall
first nations population which will affect how many first nations there are in the future.
Trend #3
In 1980, Canada welcomed
133000 new immigrants. As every decade went by,the immigrants increased by 40000 every 10 years.

Trend #2
Most immigrants settle in large communities and prefer large cities. Many immigrants settle in the provinces Quebec,Ontario and British Columbia.For example the GTA alone is home to 43% of all recent immigrants.
In 2050 Canada's population growth may mainly be based on the immigrants coming into our country. Taking in appreciation that our country today is multicultural and a lot of our population now is based on our immigrants. In 2050 every province should have a great population of immigrants.
That being said, In 2050
communities will expand and cities may
grow. Immigrants may not mainly settle
in those provinces. This is because in 2050
I think the population would increase so
towns may become cities, giving immigrants
who prefer migrating in cities a larger selection
to choice where too settle.

In 2010 there was 280000 immigrants. If the immigration continues at this rate we will have
approximately 440000 immigrants in 2050.
This map shows the most populated
areas of Canada in 2013.
Trend #2
51% of men in the poorest one fifth of the income distribution were expected to live to the age 75.

Trend #3
Among women,
72% in the poorest
one-fifth were expected to survive
to 75.

This is the population of aboriginals in 2012.
In 2050 the birth rate and
death rate depend on the mean
age of the population. If the average
population is in their mid 40's now
in 2050 our average population would
be seniors. This can increase the death rate
and the birth rate also, because families
may have grand children etc.

This was compared with 84% in the richest
one-fifth. If this trend continues the way it is in the future the death rate and birth rate could definitely change, saying the death rate can be higher.
This was compared to 84% in the richest one-
fifth. In the future Canada should work on
our financial care so that it may not affect our life span with that large of an impact. If this continues
in 2050 our birth rate may not be as high and or death rate will increase.
