What will Canada look like 10 years from now?

Title says all.

2028 Canada will be about as different from 2018 Canada as 2018 Canada is from 2008 Canada. Which is to say, not a whole lot - 10 years isn't much time in the grand scheme of things.

More people. Larger skylines.

Will Canada be more influential on the world stage and be much more noticed?

About 40M people.

Big cities keep getting bigger, small towns keep getting smaller.

Same old same old..........

We're not expecting anything unusually disruptive or game-changing next decade?

Like say, Canada develops a super powerful tech industry, or some previously declining city suddenly becomes a rising star, or some currently prosperous city declines, Detroit-style?

A nations importance is tied to it:

1) - population (40M is getting close to being relevant).
2) - regional influence (we will always be the USA's kid brother)
3) - military strength ()
4) - economic heft (hewers of wood, drawers of water, lots of branch plants, no head offices (except for the banking sector)).
5) - diplomatic sophistication (lost in the 1970's, long since gone)
6) - entertainment industry (any Canadian of influence is assumed to be American).
7) - research & development (average at best, importance subverted by branch plant economy (see above)).

Leafs will be starting their decline following years of Stanley Cup wins.

Does anyone buy the hype that the influence of Trump will send foreign talent or skilled immigrants in Canada's direction?

It's such a talking point I'm hearing as a Canadian living stateside following the political discourse there, but I don't really see it having a huge impact.

Leafs' Cup drought will be 60 years rather than the current 50, you mean.

Exactly the opposite. Corporate tax reform and financial deregulation will encourage economic growth so the US economy will be as big a talent magnet as ever. Everything else about Trump is noise in the long term.

There's already signs that the US is heading away from the flirtation with economically dangerous alt-right ideas and back to its typical self.

Obviously, in a hypothetical future in which the US continued down that road and halted immigration, threw up protectionist barriers, etc. then we'd definitely be talking about the major potential for Canada. But I don't think that's the future we're looking at.

In 10 years, Quebec will have more than 9M people. Montréal should be just short of 5M.

Annual population increases will average 550,000 over the next 10 years or 5.5 million more people altogether. The total population will be roughly 43 million. New trade deals and a booming tech industry boost income levels substantially. The Toronto - Waterloo Corridor becomes the world's 2nd biggest tech cluster after Silicon Valley. The wealth gap between Canada and the US closes almost entirely. We'll pass Italy to become the 9th largest economy and only 15% smaller than UK GDP.

The Tampa Bay Rays will move to Montreal while the Chicago White Sox re-locate to Vancouver. Hamilton and Quebec City secure NHL franchises. Basketball will continue to boom and the number of Canucks in the NBA zooms to 35. Canada goes for its 3rd straight Olympic medal in men's basketball. We're favoured for gold in 2028. The NBA expands further into Canada with new franchises in both Vancouver and Montreal. Halifax wins its first Grey Cup. The Argonauts post average attendance at an enlarged BMO Field of 37,000.

Air Canada's strategy of turning Vancouver YVR and Toronto YYZ into mega airport hubs deemed a success. YVR breaks into the top 50 busiest airports in the world, YYZ breaks into the top 20. The Windsor - London - KW - Toronto HSR line more than doubles in length with the completion of the Toronto - Ottawa - Montreal - Quebec City HSR line. Calgary - Red Deer - Edmonton HSR completed. Canada builds a major port in Churchill, Manitoba to take advantage of new Arctic shipping lanes. Toronto builds its 3rd 400m+ building and the rail deck park opens. 500,000 Torontonians watch Canada Day fireworks from the park.

I hope your dreams will come true.

Bingo.....Influential on the world stage....absolutely not.

Even when our mentally and emotionally challenged man child in charge is gone. It Won't make a difference. Scheer won't make a difference on the world stage.

I believe he will make a HUGE difference within Canada.

But Canada on the world stage will always be a lightweight. Always has been. We don't have the economic power...nor the population...Military or political influence.

These are just the facts.

Toronto and Edmonton will be the business/political hubs of Canada with skylines rivaling Chicago & Dubai... Calgary limps along as a failed one-trick pony town and Montreal remains as corrupt and insular as ever limiting its global business potential. The NDP will finally make a breakthrough on a national level despite being heavily fragmented from province to province (Alberta will still be feuding with BC despite whomever is in charge) but only after a series of failed leaders and voter fatigue for the Lib/Con cycle of corruption and greed i.e. Ontario 2018 election... Vancouver will be linked to Seattle and Portland via upgraded HSR.. As will Edmonton and Calgary via the old CP line and a faster VIA system will link Windsor to Quebec City at 230 km/h...
