Canada in 2035

Will it be the greatest country to live in?

Introduction

Will Canada be the greatest country to live in 2035?... In this smore, you'll learn the pros and cons of living in Canada in the future.

Will Canada be a desired location for immigration?

In some aspects, Canada's immigration policies are fairly abundant, including the refugee claims. Canada has one of the most liberal refugee policies which allows people from all over the world who are in danger to approach Canada as a safe haven.

Canada generally doesn't get politically involved in controversial issues. This means Canada will most likely remain a safe place for immigrants.

In addition, Canada is taking steps to save its environment which will ensure that Canada provides healthy living conditions for future Canadians.

Who will Canada be attracting to immigrate?

There are many people who Canada will catch the eyes of. For example, refugees would be attracted to come to Canada. These are people in danger looking to approach somewhere safe.

People in war torn countries are also looking for somewhere safe. Other people with families who would like to live somewhere where the environment is not as exposed to danger for them to live in.

Many people looking for job opportunities may come to Canada because of the many possible experiences they can have and to help support themselves and/or their family.

How will Canada's population look like?

In 2035, population will have expanded by quite a lot. In the chart below, you can see they compared the population from 2010 to 2035. Most of the population in the cities have increased.

This could lead to many different things. It could attract even more people to immigrate to Canada thinking that since there are already many here, there has to be something in store for them.

On the opposite hand, it could also cause people to leave the country or at least go to a different city or province with a smaller population because it can be crowded.

What issues will the First Nations, Metis and Inuit population face?

According to a survey taken in 2011, these are the populations of the First Nations, Metis and Inuits...

First Nations had a population of 851,560
Metis had a population of 451,795
Inuits had a population of 59,445

Times have changed and so has the population of the three Aboriginal groups living in Canada.

It is estimated that the population of these Aboriginal groups will decrease.

Many believe that Aboriginals will leave the country due to not being treated fairly and ignored of their rights, culture and beliefs.

Why does Canada have the climate it does?

Generally, we're known as the land of polar bears and igloos but that's not the case. Canada's climate is very diverse. Most Canadians experience four different seasons; summer, winter, fall and spring.

Canada is in the northern hemisphere, closer to the north pole so it's cooler than countries closer to the equator. Yet Canada's climate is more diverse in comparison to some other countries.

In central Canada, summers are humid, while the climate is milder on the coasts. Spring is usually the same all around. Fall is usually cool all around and winters are normally cold all around. Although some parts of Canada experience milder winters... Such as southern Alberta.

Canada's various physical regions

Canada is split into six different physical regions. These regions include...

  • The Atlantic Region-
    Also known as 'the Appalachian Highlands', it used to be a mountain range until the gradual destruction left it only with rocks, soil and trees.

  • The Great Canadian Shield-
    It used to be all mountain but is now mainly rock from the Ice Age. It is the largest of all six regions. This area surrounds the Hudson Bay.

  • The Plains-
    This region is mostly flat with a few mountains/ hills/cliffs here and there. The climate is generally dry.This region is located in between the Cordillera and the Shield.

  • The North-
    This is the only region where there is permafrost all year round. This region is also a mix of the Plains, the Cordillera and the Shield.

  • The Cordillera-
    This region is located on the west coast of Canada and has high mountains. Its biggest industry is forestry.


  • The Great Lakes St. Lawrence Region-
    Summers in this region are humid. Winters in this region are unpredictable. This is because of the landscapes and the ocean.

How will climate change alter Canada’s physical environment?

Climate change can impact Canada because if there is global warming, the northern glaciers can melt and can cause flooding through rivers and increase the water table. It can impact the irrigation system.

Climate change will also impact the ecosystem and Canada will have to adjust to these impacts in the climate change.

More research is required in this field of study.

What will be Canada's most important resources?

In 2035, there will be many valuable resources.

For example, oil. Oil is essential for industrial development and transportation. It can be a major source of exports.

Canada has a very strong banking and finance sector which is one of the best in the world and can be a very important source of revenue and service.

Another important resource can be nuclear power plants because they produce electricity most economically, we also sell electricity internationally. For example; the United States of America.

How will Canada manage these resources in a sustainable manner?

Canada should continue to invest in research to develop alternate sources of energy, for example; electric cars, solar energy for homes (and make it affordable for residential purposes), and renewable energy.

Canada should also focus on conserving the environment by further strengthening its environmental policies.

Also, Canada should continue investing in more efficient power generation projects.

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

Canada exports oil, technology on environment conservation and provides goods and services to various countries. It also has a great partnership with the United States of America.

Many of the US companies have operations in Canada. Also, Canada has sea ports.

In addition, Canada subcontracts some services to developing countries like India.

What issues are Canadian cities facing?

There are quite a few issues Canada is currently facing.

For example, our First Nations... Some say our relationship with the First Nations is non-existent. This is said because they believe we have ignored their culture, their rights, treaties and so on.

Expectations of the people... Many people have high standards they'd like the government live up to, when in reality, their desires most probably won't happen. If everyone had lower expectations, many problems could be solved.

Invasion... The invasion of the United States of America into personal lives of Canadians and many other people outside of Canada as well.

Will urban sprawl be an issue by the year 2035?

To my knowledge, urban sprawl will be an issue by 2035. There are multiple cons of urban sprawl such as

  • pollution

  • bad air quality

  • less as well as worse healthcare and education

  • only able to move around by cars/trucks/motorbikes thus increasing obesity

  • often in need of new attractions/entertainment

  • fewer attractions/entertainment

How can Ontario limit urban sprawl by the year 2035?

Ontario can provide better opportunities and develop infrastructure in the rural areas so that people don't have to move to urban areas to seek opportunities.

Also, Ontario can provide incentive to new immigrants to settle in rural areas.

In addition, Ontario can make living conditions better in rural areas making it a possibility for people in urban areas to move into rural areas.

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

Canadian cities can take the following initiatives...

  • Invest in renewable energy

  • Provide incentive to electrical cars and invest in technology to make it more affordable

  • Enforce laws to help in environmental issues (plant more trees, making a conscious effort to reduce industrial waste)

Conclusion

If Canada takes the appropriate measures to help the environment, keep urban sprawl under control, manage resources in a sustainable way, and more, Canada will be the greatest country to live in 2035.
