Will Canada Be The Greatest Country To Live In?
Unit One: Changing Populations
why is it good for immigrants?
its great for immigrants because canada has healthcare, no matter where one lives nor of income level.
why is Canada a safe country?
well there very little violence and it is illegal to use or own a gun without a valid licence.
Canada is trying to attract skilled workers. skilled workers are people like doctors, nurses, ect
Canada's populations is going to grow a lot. i think that because in 1861 to 1901, canada's population grew about 1.3% each year. We are talking about 40,884,000 people in the year 2035. ( link to population pyramid http://populationpyramid.net/canada/2035/ )
what issues will our first nations face?
Our first nations will face will be the amount of resources left in canada. Another problem they will face would be the amount of space left for them. Most of the urban areas have gotten very dense in population. They will face the huge amount of pollution giving off by the many cars in cities. one of the last problems the first nations will face would be the amount of garbage being made. Most of the garbage use to be shipped to Michigan but where will it end up in the future.
Unit Two: Interactions in the Physical Environment
In Canada we have different types of climate. Canada has relief precipitation, but this only happens in certain areas. Near the cordilleran mountains, relief precipitation is created by Winds carrying moisture are forced up the side of the mountain. As they move up the mountain side they cool down and the moisture then condenses into clouds. Rains occur. This is the windward side of the mountain (you find lush vegetation). The now dry winds continue over the mountain where very little rain will occur as the wind has lost its moisture and is dry. This is the leeward side of the mountain and has scrub grasses, small shrubs and tends to be a semi-desert. And the other precipitation is convectional precipitation .Moist air rises and the air cools as it gets higher. The moisture condenses as the air cools. If there are particles (dust etc) that the water molecules can attach themselves to, drops will start to form. When the drops get heavy enough they fall to the Earth as rain.
In convectional storms, wind currents can form from the temperature and pressure differences within the storm and pull that warm moist air high into the atmosphere. The greater the temperature (and pressure) difference the more active the air currents will be and generally the stronger the storm will be.
Canada's vegetation zone Canada's boreal zone. The boreal zone is the broad, circumpolar vegetation zone of the northern latitudes.
Unit Three: Managing Canada’s Resources & Industries
Canada's most important resource in 2035 would have to be fresh water. Canada has over 1 million lakes including some parts of great lakes, and ice fields. over time those exports will be more valuable than the 170 barrels of oil trapped in Alberta's oil sands. To use these resources sustainably, we need to stop wasting plastic, and not use most of our fresh water on cleaning the oil sands to receive the barrels of oil.
How is Canada connected to the rest of the world through trade &
Canada will connect to the rest of the world by exporting goods and getting imports from other countries. Our top export is oil, most of our is going toward the United States. Also some of the oil will be going toward other countries such as China, also U.K. Our second top export is minerals such as minerals such as aluminum, pearls, gems, also precious metals.
Unit Four: Liveable Communities
What issues are Canadian cities facing?
Some issues that canadian cities are facing is the amount of pollution being created which is enhancing the green house effect. Instead of people taking the public transit, people want to take their cars to get from one place to another. Another problem canadian cities are having that the amount of people in an are and the amount of garbage being created created. Now Canada has stopped sending garbage to Michigan, so in the year 2035, where will all the garbage go?
some issues canadian cities are facing is urban sprawl. What is urban sprawl?
Urban sprawl is a multifaceted concept of community planning especially relevant to developed nations (and primarily the United States, Canada, and Australia), involving topics that range from the outward spreading of a city.
How can Ontario limit urban sprawl by the year 2035?
Ontario can limit urban sprawl by not having many residential homes around Toronto, and Mississauga. This will allow people to move to not populated areas so places won't be so populated.
