Introduction: Canada has been one of the developed nations that is sustaining a low levels of fertility, which is also defined as 'population problems'. Rapid population growth in the Third World and the causes in crowding and environmental problems are still perceived, therefore people do not occupy it as the center stage of the problem in the same way as that they used to be 20 years ago. The present perceiving problems are the demographical low fertility rate. Background information on the Population: What was the problem? Canada has been facing problem with low fertility rate since 1972. This is mainly due to its inevitable concomitants of slow population growth, and population aging. The seriousness of this problem in Canada is a huge problem, because when looking at the population now, Canada will be facing a dramatic difference in its population pyramids due to the fact that there will be more people leaving the work force than entering. .

Also a monthly benefit for low income families with children is treated differently in each province/territory. * Parental leave/maternity leave : The parental leave is expanded from 10 weeks to 35 weeks divided as desired between two parents. This is in addition to 15 weeks maternity leave, giving a total possible period of 50 weeks paid leave for a mother. There is still no paid leave for new fathers, however. In Canada maternity and parental leave is paid for by the Employment Insurance system. Population Policy in Quebec: There was a special population policy in Quebec to encourage women giving birth. The policy was giving allowance for new born children (1988-1997) and universal child care (1997), and this went up to approximately $8000 per family. The rule of the first born child receives $500, and second $1000 then the third and subsequent receives $400. Although, there was an increase in the fertility rate from 1988-1997, therefore due to the dramatic increase in the public cost of the policy this had failed. Evaluating The policy: Achievement in Goals: From the graph, it is evident that Canada's population has increased. Therefore, most of the population growth is from its immigration. There is an average 240,000 newcomers per year, and in 2005, 43% of immigrants from China, Indian, Philippines, Pakistan and South Korea and 2% from France and UK. ...read more.


1,066,500 3.4% 1,427,900 4.1% Benefits of Immigration Policy: Although, immigration may bring some negative impacts, therefore it is needed in order to surpass on its population growth. As shown on the previous graphs, population is most increased by immigrants, and this also helps in economics in Canada, because they are not only the consumers, but also producers. Moreover, it will be hard to imagine population without immigrants, since it has play a major role in Canada's population and its economy, as the immigration provides skilled workers and business class immigrants in to Canada. Family Friendly Policy: Family in poverty: * The policy of benefiting family with more children gives a better start in life for those who live under poverty line, by improving benefits and services for their families and by helping their parents enter the workforce so they can better meet the needs of their children. In general, as the Government of Canada increases its contribution to income support through the Canada Child Tax Benefit, provinces and territories, in turn, will put in balancing benefits and services for all low-income families. Women in General: * Many women are benefited from the policy, since they receive balance work and home responsibilities.
