Canada’s current birthrate of 1.6 children per female is below the 2.1 minimum needed to maintain viability as a nation. Governments have only lately begun to pay attention to the disastrous implications of this trend. In the past we have lived under the false security that any shortfall could be made up by increased immigration. It cannot.
Furthermore, in our secular quest for securing rights over responsibilities we have permitted the loss, since 1969, of over three million citizens through abortion. CHP Canada has championed a reversal of this trend by strengthening the family and advocating ‘Adoption over Abortion’ and has proposed practical solutions to this tragedy.
Studies conducted by the C.D. Howe Institute and the Fraser Institute confirm that there are greater financial, economic and social benefits to be gained by shifting the priority in population management away from immigration and toward domestic growth.
