Canada’s Population Characteristics
Immigrants To Make Up Half Of Canada’s Population By 2041
In today’s video, we will be taking a look at the rise of immigrants and its effect on Canada’s population.
By 2041, Canada’s population is expected to have the highest percentage of immigrants in its modern history. Following a pattern that began in the early 1990s, the latest demographic projections for Canada show that immigration will continue to be the main factor for population increase in the upcoming years. If the same pattern continues, by 2041, immigrants along with their Canadian-born offspring will account for half of the country’s population.
The population of Canada is expected to reach 47.7 million by 2041, with 25 million among the population being immigrants or children of immigrants who were born in Canada, accounting for 52.4% of the population. This demographic of immigrants, which summed up to 14.4 million in 2016, made up 40.0% of all Canadians.
Based on the projected scenario, the projected percentage for 2041 might range from 49.8% to 54.3%. Many scenarios are suggested to test the accuracy of projections to different factors and due to doubt about how demographic components will change in the future.
Estimations are based on different scenarios and depend on the pattern of the population growth over the years. In one projected scenario, the percentage of immigrants in the Canadian population might grow from 21.9% in 2016 to 29.1% to 34.0% by 2041, this would be the peak level of immigrants present since the Canadian Confederation in 1867.
What this means for immigrants is that if they want to raise their family in Canada, they should expect the fusion of diverse cultures, races and ethnicities to continue to rise. Along with this, opportunities in Canada will continue to grow as more immigrants raise their families, enter the labour force and take admission in Canadian universities.
