More babies were born after the war than ever before just in 1946 alone 3.4 million babies were born, and begun the so called “baby boom.” Couples after the war had children to make up for the lost time, and the economic prosperity of America at the time. At the same time the suburban boom occurred with families moving out of the cities into surrounding areas. Year after year more and more babies were born with the numbers rising every year until over 4 million babies a year were born; until 1964 when the birth rate started to decline, and ending the baby boom generation. By the end of 1964 baby boomers made over 40% of America’s population.
-Nowadays we are more focused on our jobs and living in this century prices are high, so we do not have enough money or time to produce as much children What has changed after this significant event? -The actual baby boomers produced less children -These factors included divorces, more job opportunities for females and daycares prices increased Why are we still mentioning this event to this day? -We still mention this event because canada’s population is made of Baby Boomer generation, parents of Baby Boomers and Generation Y. -Children of Baby boomers now have to worry about paying for their parents, using their savings on their parents care -Knowing that baby boomers live longer, the amount of health issues that baby boomers deal with -This means that most of our taxes goes to these elders to pay for their health
Changes in Marriage and the American Family Family life has changed drastically since the 1950’s and 60’s. The typical family in the 60’s consisted of a married couple with children. Much like the cleaver family, the father went off to work to support his family and women stayed home and took care of the children and the household. Society was less accepting of children born to unmarried women or the “single parent”. Pew Research Center (2015) stated that two-parent households are on the decline in the United States because divorce, remarriage and cohabitation have risen and the circumstances regarding parenthood has changed.

Ontario, Canada 's most populous province with a population of more than 13.5 million, accounts for nearly 40 percent of all Canadians. To render healthcare services to people in Ontario through hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities, registered nurses and specialty nurse practitioners are needed more than ever in Ontario. In present scenario, the biggest population of baby boomers who were born between 1946 and 1964 is getting old. As a result, their health care needs are also increasing at a rapid pace. At this time, the province’s ratio of 72 nurses to every 100,000 people lags behind the nation’s average of 83 nurses to every 100,000 Canadians.
Introduction The life course in Canada has changed dramatically over the past several decades – where women once stayed at home, they now gain high degrees of education and employment; where families were once large, they are now steadily declining in size (Statistics Canada 2015; McDaniel 2001, Table 1). However, every individual’s life course is unique as it is affected and shaped by the society that they grow up in and the social, economic and political occurrences over their life course (Pampel & Peters 1995, pp.165; Elder 1999, pp.304; Mannheim 1952, pp.297). In an effort to better understand the individuality of the life course, affected by larger macro processes of society, this paper will analyse the life course of the respondent,

Foreign Worker From 2004 to 2013, there has been more males than females hired to work as a foreign worker in Canada, and most of these occupation are in lower skilled level. This results in a mismatch in employment which becomes a loss to the economy as the skills of the individual are not maximized. Once the permit expirers, the foreign worker would have to apply for a new work permit or go home and lose their employment. Being away from home and family takes a toll on the worker that makes it harder for them to adjust to the new working environment. Temporary to Permanent Residency Despite the downside, a foreign worker and international student may become a permanent resident depending on their skills and expertise.

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY Fertility is one of the major components of population growth. The past few decades have witnessed a major decline in world fertility majorly from developed countries, making global and even regional aggregates have widespread diversity in fertility change. In Asia and Latin America fertility declines over the past half century have been very permeating. Between the early 1950s and the early 2000s, the total fertility rate (TFR) dropped from 5.7 to 2.4 births per woman in Asia and from 5.9 to 2.3 births per woman in Latin America. In these regions just a few nations still have fertility rates higher than four births per woman (Bongaarts, 2011).
In 1933, the unemployment had risen from 3 percent to 25 percent of nation’s workforce and those who were able to keep their jobs faced harsh reductions in wages. Not to end with the economic disaster in the United States, Americans of the Midwest had to face over cultivation and a drought called Dust bowl. This resulted in a drastic end for agriculture
New Deal used Government as an agent and started to intervene in the economic institution in order to recover from the failure. Roosevelt New Deal plan also helped businesses to recover from the Depression loss. Shlaes mentioned in 1934, “Business has recovered half its depression loss, only 30 percent of the Depression unemployed has been put to work” (Shlaes 262). Also, to help recovery from the Great Depression, the New Deal offered social insurance; “Social Security seemed a gift on a scale most American would never have expected a president to be able to offer” (Shlaes 255). The Great depression impacted the Americana government in a way that the government had to change, reform and became more cautious of economic situations.
5. Challenge According to the school enrollment data collect: students were enrolled in the Cape Breton School decline over these years is nearly twice the provincial average . Since 1970, total enrollment has declined , for an average decline of 2.6% annually per year over the past 42 years. CAPE BRETON UNIVERSITY (CBU) ENROLMENT Form 2014, the students enrolled at CBU, down 3.1% in 1997. The number of international students enrolled at CBU in 2014 was 15 times higher than the number enrolled in 1997 .Today, more than one in four (27.3%) students at CBU are international students.
This profound effect is a result of undocumented workers. Chief Actuary of the Social Security Administration (SSA), Stephen Gross, says the statistics in his department show that undocumented workers contribute nearly $15 billion every year to Social Security through their payroll taxes (2013). This means they are a huge contribution to financing the retirement of baby boom generation elders, a cost which is continuing to be a topic of debate and concern.
This generation is yet the largest generation in Canada. During the timeframe of baby boom, approx. 8.2 million babies were born. In the present days, the average number of children per woman is 1.7 compared to 3.7 children per woman during the baby boom period which is more than double the rate. The baby boom impacted Canada in
