Is Canada the greatest country to live in 2035 ?

Introduction

The purpose of this assignment is to use what you have learned from the past and put that all together and insure that you understand why Canada is the greatest country to live in.

Changing Population

Will Canada be the desired destination for immigrants?

I think Canada will be the desired destination for immigrants because Canada is a free and democratic country, that gives freedoms too all people no matter what raise or religion. Canada is a very well developed country because they have many outstanding resources such as farming, fishing and mining also very advanced country. This makes the chances of employment much higher. Canada is a diverse and multicultural country with lots of land and resources but few people. Over the years Canada has started to grow in population with the higher birth rates and much lower death rates, because of this there is a lower dependency load.

Who will Canada be attracting as immigrants?

I believe Canada will attract countries that had war for example Pakistan, Iraq. Also countries that had lack of freedom and low education or low job opportunity. People that need high education and interested and have the ability to learn will be also attracted, people that invest there money in making a company or starting a family and hoping there children get the best education they can.

How will Canada population look?

I think that Canada's population will increase over then next few years because Canada is getting a lot of immigrates. A lot of families are moving into Canada to let there children have the best education they can.

What issues will our First Nations, Metis and Inuit populations Face?

Aboriginal people are over-represented in the criminal justice system as offenders and inmates, and under-represented as officials, officers, court workers or lawyers. Research has shown the high crime rate among the Aboriginal population is a result of the effects of the residential school system, experience in the child welfare system, effects of the dislocation and dispossession of Aboriginal peoples, family or community history of suicide, substance abuse and/or victimization, lower educational attainment, poverty, poor living conditions, and exposure to/membership in street gangs.

Interaction in the physical environment

Why does Canada have the climate it does?

Latitude

Canada is one of the coldest country in the world. First of all they are not close to the equator so its not as hot as the countries near the equator this is because the earth’s rounded surface (curvature) causes the sun’s energy to be spread out over larger areas towards the poles.

Ocean Currents

Canada’s east coast is greatly affected by the cold Labrador Current and warm Gulf Stream. The meeting of these two currents often results in damp and foggy conditions – dangerous to ships and freighters.

Wind and Air Masses

Prevailing Winds are the well-established patterns of winds blowing from west to east over Canada. We call these prevailing winds westerlies and they move air masses, affecting our weather. There are 5 air masses that cover North America, and each one brings certain weather conditions to various areas of the continent:

Elevation

Mountains influence climate because the higher you go up, the colder the climate is. In dry air, the temperature decreases at a rate of 1°C/100m, and in moist air at a rate of 0.6°/100m.

Relief

Air condenses as it rises up a mountainside. This causes relief precipitation. The windward side of a mountain receives a lot of precipitation.

Nearness to Water

Places located near a body of water are called maritime climates (Mississauga) and experience mild temperatures (small temperature range) and large amounts of precipitation (more than 1000mm).

Decribe Canada's various physical regions

Great lakes- St lawrence Lowlands


It is located on the southern parts of Ontario and Quebec. The Great Lake St. Lawrence Lowland region has rich, fertile soil for agriculture which

makes it the second largest farming area in Canada. There are many resources

in this region, such as zinc, lead, cattle and grain. Great Lake St. Lawrence Lowland's climate is a humid, continental climate, meaning that it is a dry climate with very cold winters and very hot summers. As well as this, tobacco plants, peaches, cherries, grapes, apples, hay and many vegetables, such as carrots and beans are found here.


Interior Plains


It is located in North America, they stretch from the Arctic ocean to the gulf of Mexico. 1300 km wide at south and 275 km wide at the North. The plains have good fertile soil to grow crops. Part of the Sedimentary Rocks, are coral reefs that formed near the surface during the Paleozoic Era, they are now broken down under the many layers of Earth underneath the Plains.


How will climate change alter Canada's physical environment?

Canada has hot summers and cold winters, without the heat in the summer the plants and tree's will not grow properly. Instead if there was cold summers all the tree's and plants will not be able to survive that weather because they are not meant for that kind of weather.

Manage Canada's Resources and Industries

What will be Canada's most important resources?

Canada's most important resources are fresh water, oil and gases. Canada produces the most oil in the world and 1/3 of its oil goes to USA. Canada makes up to 65 barrels of oil a day. Fishing is another resource. There are a lot of fishers out there in Canada. People have caught many fishes in Lake Ontario.

How will Canada manage these resources sustainably?

Canada will stop using too much of the resource and use what is needed. Canada will not waste the resources and use them properly so that the next generation will have some left for them too.

How is Canada connected to the rest of the world through trade and globalization?

Canada is connected to the rest of the world through NAFTA and WTO. NAFTA stands for North American Free Trade Agreement. On January 1, 1994, the North American Free Trade Agreement between the United States, Canada, and Mexico (NAFTA) entered into force. WTO is World Trade Organization

liveable Communities

What issues are Canada's cities facing?

The issues that are affecting Canadian cities is urban sprawl. It affects a lot of cities around Canada. Ontario is one of them. Ontario is trying to limit the amount of urban sprawl they have.


Will Urban Sprawl be an issue in 2035?

I think it can be a big issue in 2035. Although we live in one of the world's largest countries with an endless horizon of space, we choose to live right next to each other in our cities. Over 80% of us now live in urban areas. As our cities grow bigger, urban sprawl is beginning to affect our quality of life.

The most obvious problem is that sprawl leads to a car-dependent culture—and driving is stressful for drivers and for nature. More traffic, more carbon emissions, more smog! But sprawl isn't inevitable. It is often the result of poor planning and short-sightedness.

Sprawl affects us in surprising ways—like draining our precious free time and expanding our waistlines. A commuter who drives just one hour each day spends the equivalent of nine working weeks a year in a car. Researchers have found that people living in sprawling suburbs spend less time walking and weigh up to six pounds more than those living in pedestrian-friendly neighbours.

How will Ontario limit urban sprawl by the year 2035?


Many cities are exploring the use of financial incentives to developers as a tool for promoting sustainable community development, e.g., tax breaks for brownfield or infill redevelopment, heritage conservation, or habitat preservation. Some provinces bar cities from providing financial incentives to private businesses, a serious limitation on their ability to direct change in a sustainable fashion. New technologies are being developed by government (e.g., Natural Resources Canada) and private sector companies to capture landfill gases for electricity generation, and to accelerate the breakdown of materials in landfill sites.

What initiatives will Canadian cities take to be sustainable in 2035?


The government's role (Industry Canada/SCI) is to develop and maintain an official framework for the relationship with selected cities and to facilitate projects. It does not finance projects. Some funding was provided during the Roadmap phase to help defray some of the participation costs.

In achieving its overall objective of increasing exports of Canadian sustainable development technologies and services, SCI also:

  • brands Canada as a pre-eminent source of technology, expertise and products for urban sustainable development;
  • promotes market development and trade opportunities for Canadian firms;
  • enhances the quality of life in developing and emerging economies as well as promotes sustainable development;
  • facilitates business partnerships among firms, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and government to access market opportunities.

Conclusion

Overall I think Canada will be the greatest country to live in by 2035. Canada is trying to be more sustainable and use resources efficiently. Canada has a great climate with hot summers and cold winters, a mix of both. Also there are many types of landforms and regions.
