ECO202: Tutorial Worksheet 14 1. Consider immigration policy in Canada in more detail by working with Table 17- 1 of your text (page 338). a. At what point in time is natural population growth in Canada expected to become negative? b. If the government reached a target for immigration in 2009 of 250,000 immigrants and emigration remained the same, how much larger would you expect Canada’s population to be in 2010? c. The government wants to change immigration so that a larger proportion of immigrants are in categories immediately needed by employers. If successful, what are the implications for Canada’s employment-to- population ratio over time? d. Use Figures 17-1 and 17-2 to consider the following. In 2007, Canadian residents worked 562,182,600 hours. If 2008 through 2010 allow in an “extra” 50,000 immigrants per year and these emigrants work in the same proportions as Canadians, by what percentage does Canada’s labor input rise? What complications exist for this calculation?
