“What will Canada look like demographically in the year 2050?” Canada 2050 Research Organizer

Canada has been through a lot of changes; But now it’s time to see how Canada will demographically look like in the year of “2050”. Using the contents below will show us some ways how Canada will be changed throughout.

Immigration trends

Immigration trend 1: "Number of immigrants who landed annually in Canada in 1852 to 2014."

Since Confederation in 1867, more than seven million immigrants have moved to Canada.The trend of immigrants have been fluctuating over the 150 years in Canada, but since 2010 it's been at a pretty steady state.

For example, in the late 1800's the number of immigrants have annually entered Canada varied between 6,300 and 133,000. The highest number ever recorded was in 1913, when more than 400,000 immigrants arrived in the country.

Immigration trend 2: "In the past, immigrants mainly from European countries"

During the first few official counts of the population. The population of immigrants born in European countries other than in the British Isles had started to increase in the late 1800s.

The British Isles helped a lot with immigration to many European foreign-born people. The immigrants accounting for 83.6% of the foreign-born population in the 1871 Census, or close to half a million people. Immigrants from the United States (10.9%), Germany (4.1%) and France (0.5%) were far behind.

Key prediction: I think this will greatly increase over the years for both of the immigration trends.


Population trend 1: “Fertility: Fewer children, older moms”

Over the past 150 years, Canada has changed a lot within the high-fertility society as where women had many children during their lives, whereas now slowly turning into a low-fertility society where women are having fewer children and at the time when they are getting too old for the average women to have kids.

High-fertility means a high “ability” (or chance) to conceive children or young. Low-fertility means a low “ability” (or chance) to conceive children or young.

Population trend 2: "Death Rates in 2016"

Death rate: 8.5 deaths/1,000 population (2016 est.)

This entry gives the annual number of deaths in Canada in a year (Supposedly this year is directed more at “2016”) The death rate indicates the average count of deaths for each year. The death rate will increase more and more throughout the years.

Key prediction: These population rates will increase throughout the years as of 2016 and plus.


First Nations, Metis & Inuit Trends 1: "Aboriginal Peoples in Canada: First Nations People, Métis and Inuit"

"Aboriginal" is a term that includes First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. First nations are descendants of the original inhabitants of Canada who lived here for many thousands of years before explorers arrived from Europe.

In the 2011 National Household Survey, there were at least 1,836,035 people in Canada who had reported having a Aboriginal ancestry. This represents 5.6% of the Canadian population.

First Nations, Metis & Inuit Trends 2: "The Aboriginal population is young.

The Aboriginal population is younger than the non-Aboriginal population. This is due to higher fertility rates and shorter lives. The First Nations people and the Inuit have a higher life fertility rates than the non-Aboriginal population.

In 2011, NHS (National Health Service) showed that there were 392,105 Aboriginal children aged 14 and under in Canada. They had represented at least over one-quarter (28.0%) of the total Aboriginal population, and 7.0% of all children in Canada.

Key prediction: These trends on Aboriginal people (First Nations, Metis & Inuit) will decrease throughout the years and in 2015; would be less of them.

These are the trends I have introduced and how drastically they have changed throughout the years; How they will differ by the time 2050 comes around with these types of trends.

This little video explains the immigration and populations in Canada and how it's changing. Talking about the dates, how many people were born outside of Canada.. etc. It helps you to understand more on how Canada's population is changing everyday. This supports my point of view in the populations trend(s).. how? It's talking about what I had also previously talked about in the past content.
