Canadian Immigration Policy in an time of aging populations, shifting centres of economic growth and the rise of artificial intelligence

"The populations of many advanced and emerging economies are aging. The majority of the world�s population lives in nations where fertility rates are below replacement rates�in short, these countries� populations are gradually aging. The resulting decline in labour-force participation rate will limit the potential for economic growth, and a rising population of seniors will strain public finances."
