I believe that the future immigration of Canada 2050 will certainly be different than the current immigration. The immigration has constantly changed in the past 50 years or so and is continuously changing/increasing in the present so if it stays on track then there will defiantly be a difference in the present immigration and the immigration of 2050. Experts believe that around 2030 deaths are expected to start outnumbering births because most of Canada's current population is in its 50s and 60s so by the mid 2030s the death rate would decrease causing the immigrant rate to increase and also the natural increase of the population is expected to decrease causing immigration to be the only growth factor in the Canadian population. And factors such as poverty, overpopulation, armed conflict/wars, social strife, political turmoil, and economic hardships can cause many more immigrants from Asia to migrate to Canada and one pull factor is that the Canadian government is looking for young skilled work to migrate to Canada to work and improve the economy because the young skilled worker population of Canada is low and is decreasing, by 2050 it will be at its lowest point if new immigrants won't migrate to Canada because many people can't have kids due to sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV, Aids and many adults don't want to have kids because of factors such as education, cost, etc but the push factor is that if the young population of Canada starts to increase then the Canadian government font need more immigrants and would decrease the amount of immigrant to migrate per year.
This graph show the natural, and migratory increase in the Canadian population from 1851 to prediction of 2051.
This the Canadian population divided into males and females and by age.
Canadian Current Demography
Canada has registered a approximately 1% of average annual growth rate relatively high compared to all the G-8 countries and is rate is similar to of USA but this is due to strong immigration. During the last 60 years Canada's population has increased more than 20 million from 12.3 million in 1946 to 32.6 million in 2006 this occurred due to factors such as the baby boom after WW2 and high immigration rate but after the baby boom the natural increase of Canada's population because the birth rate of Canada is dropping at rapid state from birth rate of 3.81 children per mother in 1960 to a birth rate of 1.61 children per mother in 2010 this has caused the natural increase of Canada to only contribute 1/3 % in the population growth rate leaving 2/3 % to be depended on immigrating. The death rate has also been increasing over the past 32 years, it increased by 36% from 175,727 to 238,418 and the main factors that caused this are population aging and demographic growth.
In my opinion I believe that the Canadian population will have a difference in 50 years from now and the difference is that the population will be much larger than of now because the of the continuous immigration growth pre year because the recently promoted government of Canada (Liberal Party) decided to increase the immigration rate allowed per year and promises to bring 300000 more immigrant by the end of 2016 and follow on this promise and try to bring this many amount of immigrants every year but if the government decided not bring more immigrant in then the population will start to decrease because immigration is the more factors causing it to increase but if does not occur in the future then Canada will belong to a visible minority and one in four will be foreign-born. The vast majority (96%) of people belonging to a visible minority group from 2016- 2050. Due to the factor of immigration being the top factor of growth in human populations in Canada
This shows the Mortality rate of Canada's current population by age and gender.
In 2011, 851,560 people identified as First Nations and had represented 60.8% of the total Aboriginal population and 2.6% of the total Canadian population. 637,660 First Nations were reported being registered Indians, representing 74.9% of all First Nations, and 45.5% of the total Aboriginal population and 1.9% of the total Canadian population. The population increased by 232,385 people meaning 20.1% between 2006 to 2011. In 2050. The Native Indians have a substantially higher birth rate than us. I think this birth rate will continue to be the same because it is in their mind set no matter what to keep having 3+ kids. They are also having better health care from the Canadian government and more funding. Which means that their death rate will also continue to decrease so they will basically be a stage three community in 2050 with a rapidly increasing population.
