the death rate in Canada is 8.1 per 1000 people i believe this will increase due to the increase of Canada's population dying of old age but its not as bad as many third world countries such as south africa where they're death rate is 17.50. i think that in 2050 the death rate will increase because 54.6% of canadas population a little over half of our population will be between 70-100 years of age and in canada the average age of death in canada is 80 years years old. the reason why is think this will be such a big effect is because also in canada our birth rates are going down as said above canada is heading towards a zero growth rate but what will keep our population in canada in our immigration rates as said below.
in the late 1800s the number of immigrants was between 6,300 and 133,000 but the amount grew as Canada promoted the settlement of western Canada in the 1900s. the highest amount ever recorded was in 1913 when over 400,000 immigrants arrived in Canada but then the amount went down dramatically during the first world war (world war 1) to around 34,000, but still the lowest numbers of immigrants entering Canada was through the great depression and world war 2. in Canada the top 2 countries for immigration are china and India because they are both highly populated countries and because Canada is a very safe country one of the safest in the world because of no active wars and healthcare is also very good. i predict that Canada's immigration rate will increase because of the job opertunities and canadas immigration rates have continuously gone up in the past years.
there are around 30,000,00 people living in Canada about 1.17 million of the population are identified as aboriginals. from 1996-2006 the aboriginal population grew at a much faster rate then the non aboriginal population at 45%. though the metis had the highest growth rate of all aboriginal groups nearly doubling from 1996-2006. the first nations population grew at 29% while the Inuit population grew by 26 %, statistics show that the aboriginal population could increase to 1.14 million by 2017 from 1.1 million in 2006. there are many factors that can contribute to the aboriginal population increasing such as higher fertility rate and also in the past few years more and more people have a tendecy to identify themselves as aboriginal. i think that the aboriginal population will increase very much by 2050 because aboriginals are receiving more land from the government which will lead to a population to increase beecasue of the aboriginals having more land for bigger families.
