Canada in 2035
Will Canada be the greatest country in 2035
Unit one: Changing populations
Now and in 2035. Canada will be a desired destination for immigration because of all the opportunities it offers for the immigrants like jobs, better living conditions, better healthcare, and a fair government. Many immigrants choose Canada as their home because of all the problems they face in there countries such as a Dictatorship government, War, no freedom of speech or movement, Gender inequality and etc. Usually they choose Canada because of the higher quality of life it offers. Canada will be attracting people from developing countries like India, China, Guyana and etc. In general people from all around the world. A big portion of immigrants choose to live in major cities such as Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Edmonton. This helps our city become very multicultural and major powerhouses financially and economically with all these new talents and experiences coming from around the world. This helps shape our country into a stronger and better Canada.
Currently, Canada’s population right now is 35 million people and is in stage 4 in the demographic transition model which means our population growth is very slow because of our low birth rate which is low because of our fertility rate which is 1.5 children per women which is estimated to get worse and by 2035 our population will be an aging population and will be only at 41 million people so in twenty years our population will only grow by 6 million . Deaths will start to outnumber births because our population will continue to age as baby boomers are going into retirement, Our birth rate would stay low and our fertility rate would stay low as well. Our fertility rate in 2035 is estimated to be 1.3 children per women. Immigration will be our only source of population growth. We have to rely on Immigration to balance out our population . This will cause our society to be even more multicultural in the future. With all different types of cultures, religions, and ethnic backgrounds coming to Canada, we will be one of the most multicultural countries in 2035.
Currently, there are about 1.4 million FNMI people in Canada they are around 4.3 percent of the total Canadian population. They have a high birth rate and a lower death rate which means they're population is rapidly growing unlike the Canadian population.Aboriginal people have a high fertility rate and a shorter life expectancy, so if the fertility rate is high then the population is expanding. A lot of problems that the aboriginals face are poor healthcare, malnutrition, and problems such as alcoholism, suicide, diseases and etc. All of these problems are factors of the poor living conditions they face. By 2035 if they do not receive any aid from the federal government that can improve their condtions, there condition will worsen.
Unit two: Interactions In The Physical Environment
Six factors affect Canada’s climate, which are: Latitude, winds and air masses, Ocean currents, near water, elevation, and relief precipitation. Latitude affects Canada’s climate because the further you are from the equator the less concentrated the ultraviolet rays because they are more bended which results in a colder climate so that’s why our territories in the north face the weathers they do. Wind and air masses affect Canadian climate because by bringing over winds and air masses from different regions into new regions that brings those temperatures from the region the air mass started from. Ocean currents act like a conveyor belt, transporting warm water from the equator to the poles, and cold water from the poles to the tropics. Near water affects climate because the bodies of water absorb heat during warm months and releases the heat in the cold months (moderating affect). Elevation affects climate because the higher the altitude the colder the temperature. Last climate factor, relief precipitation affects climate, in order for relief precipitation to happen you need mountainous region and an onshore breeze.
