Canada in 2035
Today in 2015, Canada is a extremely popular destination for immigrants. Canada attracts around 250,000 immigrants per year but I think the number of immigrants will decrease by 2035. This is because by 2035, many other countries that are not currently developed will have become countries just as developed as Canada. This will give immigrants many choices to chose from.
Where will Canadian immigrant's come from? What will the Canadian population look like?
In 2015, the majority of the immigrants in Canada come from southeast Asia, South America and Africa. By 2035, I predict many immigrants will be coming as refugees from places where there is war or natural disasters. The current population of Canada in around 35 million people. I think in the year 2035, the population will have started to decrease because Canada is currently a stage 4 country which means there is a low birth rate. By 2035, Canada will have started going into a stage 5 country where the population starts to decline. The population of Canada will start to decrease following the patterns of Japan and Germany.
What issues will our First Nations, Metis & Inuit population face?
in 2035, First Nations people will have some problems. One of them might be urban expansion into their land. As more people move from rural areas to urban, the demand for cities increase. By 2035, Canada might run out of space to build cities and be forced to go into First Nation land.
Why does Canada have the climate it does?
Canada has many different climates. In the north, it is very cold and in the south, there is cold winters and warm summers. Areas beside oceans such as St.John and British Columbia have high precipitation. Factors effecting the climate is:
-nearness to water
Describe Canada’s various physical regions (landform regions, vegetation zones).
Canada has many different types of land form regions. Each region is different with its own features and species of organisms. The lowlands are flat lands with forests. The Appalachian regions are made of a high mountain range. The plains are flat lands ideal for farming and the arctic regions are made of cold tundra deserts.
How will climate change alter Canada’s physical environment?
In 2035, i think climate change will cause Canada's Northern regions to melt. The large glaciers are already melting today and it will only get worse by 2035. In the southern regions, winters will have little to no snow because of the warm temperatures caused by global warming.
What will be Canada’s most important resources? How will Canada manage these resources in a sustainable manner?
In 2035, i think Canada's most important resources will be water, wood and oil. This is because Canada owns 20% of the worlds fresh water. As the worlds population grows, fresh water will be in high demand making fresh water extremely valuable. Canada has many forest and large amounts of oil sands which makes those two resources valuable for Canada's economy. Canada can manage these resources by recycling paper, saving water and use transportation that does not require oil.
How is Canada connected to the rest of the world through trade & globalization?
Canada is connected to the rest of the world through its abundant natural resources. Canada trades oil to different countries as well wood and fresh water. The more Canada trades, the more Canadian culture and trends will be shared world wide.
What issues are Canadian cities facing?
Canadian cities have many problems such as over population, urban sprawl, long commute times and pollution. These issues create problems such as global warming, traffic jams and health problems.
Will urban sprawl be an issue in 2035? How can Ontario limit urban sprawl by the year 2035?
Urban sprawl is an issue today, and it will continue to 2035. Urban sprawl is when cities run out of space to expand and are required to move away from the city and create suburbs. Ontario can limit urban sprawl by 2035 by restricting settlement areas, protecting certain land and creating settlement boundaries. These things plus proper education to the citizens will help limit Ontario's urban sprawl in 2035.
What initiatives will Canadian cities take to be sustainable in 2035?
Making a city sustainable isn't one persons job. If everyone in their city did a part to make it sustainable, it would be much easier. People can recycle their garbage more efficiently, grow their own food, use renewable energy such as wind and hydro power and improve public transit. These initiatives will help make Canadian cities much more sustainable as well as reduce pollution and improve health.
Many changes can happen by 2035. They can be for the better, or for the worst. Canada can be a beautiful, pollution free place with sustainable cities and resources, or it can be a terrible place to live in with health issues and lack of resources. This information is important because it can educate people who don't know about this topic. If more people know about it, more action will be taken to stop the issues that are currently in Canada, as well as the problems we may face in the future.
