Canada

Why Canada?

I believe that Canada is the best country to live in. this is because for many years, people all over the world have been immigrating to Canada to live a better life. From all the way the way back in 1900-1910, the settlement of the west, people from United States, Russia and Australia have immigrated to Canada to the time in 1981-200, immigration from the east, people all over the world immigrating from Hong Kong, India, China, Philippines, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Taiwan. People immigrate to Canada for better job opportunities, education, and better life style and even refugees seeking safety and shelter. Also the size of Canada is so large that geographers divided it into different regions to make it easier for them self’s to study the land. They way geographers classified the different landform regions is by their combination of characteristics; like, age of rock, type of rock, relief, gradient, and process that has shaped the region. Canada’s global connections are very important because we as Canadians need to take full advantages of imports to become better. For example nafta, nafta gives Canada the opportunity to not just get more good and products but also to save money because of the no tariffs agreement. Canada mostly contains of tertiary industry. basically Canada provides services rather than good. Canada's major primary industries are fishing, limber, agriculture, and minerals. all of them found in different places. even though Canada is not a major source for primary and secondary industries, it still contributes as much as possible.

Changing Population-Canada's Aboriginals

Canadian Aboriginals are a big part of Canada history and still do exist today. In the 1991 census 2.8% of Canada's population were Aboriginals. This trend continued to grow in 2001 reaching 3.3%, 3.8% in 2006 and in 2011 reached 4.3%. The Aboriginals population increased by 20.1% between 2006 and 2011 compared to the non-Aboriginals, 5.2%. A large percentage of the Aboriginals population lived in Ontario and in the western provinces like Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. But Aboriginals are not just a part of our population, Aboriginals play a big part of where Canadian settled. One major settlement was the Royal Proclamation of 1763 where it was stated the guidelines for European settlement of the Aboriginals territories when the Europeans migrated to Canada.

Changing Population-Pull Factors of Canada

1. Better Education

- Education in Canada is mostly provided publically.


2. Better job opportunity

- The employment rate of Canadian adults from the age of 15 years old and over, are working in pay. Showing that they got a bigger chance of taking care of them self's.


3. Food and Water

-Near 20% of Canada's imports are consumer goods, including food and water.


4. Freedom

- check Link bellow.


5. Better healthcare

- Canada's Medicare is created to ensure that there is reasonable access to hospitals and medical attentions.


All the pull factors that I named are not the only pull factors Canada have. For example, Canada provides open communities, safer living conditions, multicultural, no language or religion barrier, welfare and no major economic problems or problems towards other counties and etc. The reason way I chose to put these pull factors is because most places in the world don't provide that, so people try to move to a better place and end up in Canada.

Changing Population-Canada's development

Canada is a well developed country. Canada placed first in most of 1990 as the number one United Nation's humans development list. In 2013, Canada dropped from tenth place to 11th. But this does not mean that Canada is not a developed country.

Changing Population-Canada's development

Canada's death rate is 8.2 people per 1000 every year. The birth rate of Canada is 10.28 people per 1000 every year. The death rate being close to the birth rate but still under the amount results in Canada being around the "low stationary" stage. Meaning that Canada's natural increase is increasing. This also shows people in different parts of the world that Canada has good health, improving status of woman, later marriages and good family planning. Also it will show that Canada provides good health care and reliable food because of the death rate being lower than the birth rate.


Interactions In The Physical Environment-Climate Change

The Canadian Government support a combative approach to climate change, not just in Canada but also world wide to help environmental issues and economic issues to help benefit all Canadians. The Canadian Government Helps internationally to help other developing economies with reducing their emissions and adapt faster and better to their climate change.

Interactions In The Physical Environment-Climate Change

Thanks to Canada's advanced technology, Canada understands the causes of climate change and the impact towards our environment. Canada has a distinct climate making it very important for Canada to be aware of the climate change accruing. Canada's Government is well aware of the situation and are fighting against it by creating laws, policies and programs to protect the environment. Also, were working with other government departments, provinces, territories, and other countries to support support fight against climate change.


Interactions In The Physical Environment-Climate Change

Canada has eight regions and six characteristics make it different.


LOWERN-

L- latitude

O- ocean currents

W- wind

E- elevation

R- relief

N- nearness to water


All those characteristics make the the difference between the eight regions.

Interaction In The Phyical Environment-Plate Techtonics

Canada is located on one of 30 or so plate tectonics. Each plate is a few kilometers thick, and move in every direction. When plates collide, it creates earthquake, volcanoes, ocean trenches and mountain building and some resulting in a natural disaster.

Interaction In The Physical Environment-Natural Desaster

Canada's ocean borders stretches through six time zones, encompasses mountains, plains, forests and tundra. Each different region's weather is different. From non stop rain to no rain at all, heat waves to freezing cold. With all these kinds of weather behavior in different landforms, the possibility of a weather or/and geological event is becoming a reality. When a natural hazard effects Canadian people, the people around use and the environment, its called a disaster. For a natural hazard to be called a disaster, it must follow the following criteria:10 or more people killed100 or more people affected/injured/infected/evacuated or homelessan appeal for national/international assistancehistorical significancesignificant damage/interruption of normal processes such that the community affected cannot recover on its ownThe risks of a natural disaster having a negative impact on us as humans and the environment is growing worldwide. Natural disasters like, tornadoes, earthquake, tsunamis, forest fire, volcanoes, rain storms, snow storms and many more are accruing more and more frequently. Canada is not prone to this, but again no country is. Like in 2003, Hurricane Juan hit P.E.I and Nova Scotia. But Canada does not stop trying to prevent damage to Canada's people, their property and the environment. In 2013, Canadian housing won the best disaster-proof housing design.

Managing Canada's Resources And Idustries

Canada's connection to the world is very important. It always us, as Canadians to get the goods and services we need. Also, if we have the opportunity to save money by importing good and products, we will rather than growing them. One very important connection Canada has is NAFTA. NAFTA is an agreement between Canada and U.S.A in 1989. They agreed on cancelling at tariffs and later on Mexico joined the agreement in 1994. The reason way we as Canadians benefit from this is we are able to import and trade goods and services from the U.S.A or Mexico with out paying taxes. For example, oil from Alberta gets exported to Louisiana, U.S.A and in return the U.S.A pays back in money but first they much convert American dollar into Canadian dollar.

Managing Canada's Resaures And Industries

Globalization for Canada is important because it helps us in medical, cultural, environmental, educational and economic. For example, a Iceland company acquired the commercial rights to the world’s first bionic leg prosthesis, found by Stephane Bedard in Quebec. This impacts Canada because it helps us understand more about the human body and save kids or adults in need.




Education is major in Canada. Mexico, the Guadalajara International book fair is one of five exhibitions at which Association for the Export of Canadian books puts up a big tent to fill with reading. By Canada giving, it helps create a better relationship with Canada and other countries.

Managing Canada's Resources And Industries-Industries

Canada contributes to three types of industries.


The first one is primary industry;this is where industries take raw materials from the natural resource. This type of industry is usually found in areas where appropriate resources are found. For example lakes is where primary industries go for fishing. Or farming is done in the Interior Plains. Other examples are mining, agriculture and forestry. Out of all the workers that work in all industries, around 4.1% work in primary industry. The second type of industry is secondary industry;this is where they turn raw material into finished goods. This type of industry is found in densely populated areas, usually near costumers. 20.7% of all workers working in all industries work in secondary industry. Some examples of secondary industry finished goods are computers, diamonds, cans of fruit and big construction machines.The final type of industry is the tertiary industry;this is where services are being provided for primary and secondary industries. Tertiary industries are found in towns and cities. Few examples of tertiary industries are teachers and doctors. About 75.2% of industry workers work in the tertiary industry.

Conclusion

So why Canada? Because it is the ultimate place to not just count on but to be there for you and for your kids future. Canada globalization proves that it is capable of getting almost any sorts of goods and products. Showing that Canada's resources wont run out any time soon hopefully. The Indicators of Canada is well above in almost all categories, showing that Canada is a developed country. What Canada spends every year is over the top but it shows that Canada is going above and beyond just to make Canada a better place. Canada try its best to protect its people in any situation. From horrible living conditions to shelter for the homeless. Canada has a lot of pull factors and very few push factors that Canada's Government is working on and trying to fight it like climate change. By the statistics of the different type of industries. Canada supports all industries equally do its large amount of resources. This is why I think Canada is the best place to live.
