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?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
