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. .

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.

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.
