Canada in 2050 Armaan hayer

Introduction

Canada is a great country. I was born in India and I moved to Canada because its a great country and has a lot of opportunities. These are some of the trends that will happen in 2050.

Immigration

Trend #1

Natural increase is decreasing and migratory increase is skyrocketing.

Proof:

In this graph, the migratory increase took over natural increase around 1997. The baby boom was well over in 1996, that is the reason why there was such a drastic increase in migratory increase.

Trend #2

Immigration rates

The immigration rates during the world war 2 stooped to the lowest level Canada had ever seen. After the world war the immigration rated started skyrocketing.

Prediction

I predict in 2050 that the population of Canada will be 35 million . Immigration will also take over natural increase and that immigration will be the only factor in keeping the population steady. Advances in the medical field will also be a factor in the increasing population and increased life expectancy as Canada is a well developed country.

Demography of Canada

Trend #1

Baby boomers retiring

Proof

"The baby boomers — those born from 1946 to 1965 — will reach retirement age over the next two decades. That will raise the number of seniors in the population to an estimated 23.6 per cent by 2030, the year the youngest baby boomers turn 65. That compares with 15.3 per cent in 2013.By 2063, the number of Canadians aged 80 years and over would reach nearly five million, compared with 1.4 million in 2013.That trend will put huge demands on the resources for long-term care and home care by 2030, and will continue for the next 30 years. Older seniors are more likely to have health problems or need help to stay in their homes.At the same time, the number of people between 15 to 64 — those of working age — will decline as a proportion of the population from 68.6 per cent in 2013 to 60 per cent in 2030. It could remain around 60 per cent for the next 30 years.Depending on the strength of the Canadian economy and how technology changes the workplace, that could result in a shortage of labour. Businesses that offer only part-time work, with no prospects of a permanent stable income or benefits, would be forced to change their labour practices.Those left in the workforce will also shoulder much of the burden of supporting the health-care sector." Canada's seniors population to jump, workforce decline by 2063, CBC News, September 14, 2014

Trend #2

Life expectancy is increasing

Proof

The life expectancy has increased over the years. From 1951 till 2001 the life expectancy has increased by 11 years for the males and 10 years for the female population.

Prediction

I predict like this chart is showing, that the life expectancy is going to increase by a lot as health care is improving and advancing. Also I believe that starting a business for seniors will be beneficial, businesses such as old age homes and health practitioners will be in a profit.

Aboriginal

Trend #1

Aboriginal baby boom

Trend #2

Issues for Aboriginals Increasing

Proof

Prediction

I predict that in 2050 aboriginals will be one of the main factors of natural increase. Aboriginals will also be suffering as they have many issues but very less solutions. the government is not helping the aboriginal population. In 2050 you will have a higher chance of seeing someone from the aboriginal population.
