The places in Canada where the people live and why

Most people live in southern Canada in towns and cities, near the border and Canadian shield. One reason is due to the fact that in northern Canada it has a harsh climate, that is extremely cold all year-round. While in southern Canada it warms up a little and is super cold. Some other reasons is their is more job opportunity's and about 80% of their exports are to the U.S., and the U.S is right below southern Canada. One other big reason why people live in southern Canada has to do with their natural resources. Canada is big in exporting minerals and ore, fish, timber, wildlife, coal, petroleum, natural gas, and hydroelectric power. All of these natural resources can be found near the mountains and the Canadian shield.

Canada's government

Canada's type of government is constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary democracy, and a federal system. You might be thinking how it has a two different types of government and a federal system, well here is how. Canada's monarchy is the queen of the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth II, and she does not live in Canada even! This is because of the explorers like the French and Britain. Than their prime minister is Justin Trudeau who actually lives in Canada. Finally they have a Federation because the tribes like Nunavut complained so much that they wanted their own government, that Canada just passed a law for them.
