48% of First Nations people are under the age of 25. 1 in 5 Aboriginal people live in Ontario. 58% of Aboriginal people live in the four Western provinces which include Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. 40% of First nations people drink heavily. 18% of First Nations people smoke daily.
In 2050, the First Nations population will substantially increase as their birth rate is much higher than the non-Aboriginals. In 2050, I think that substance abuse will go down as we become more aware of the effects of certain types of drugs.
Those are my predictions on my life and Canada in 2050. There will be many more changes but these are some to the main and easy to predict changes. Overall Canada seems to be headed in the right direction and at a sustainable rate.
