The Canadian Shield is mostly rocks, its mostly the bedrock exposed and part of the Precambrian which existed 500 million years ago.
The shield stretches from the top of Nunavut to nearly the bottom of Ontario. The Climate can vary, but it is a mostly cold climate. Climate change would make the summers longer, melt some permafrost and expose some materials.
Because The Canadian shield is a hilly, rocky and full of lakes. Most settlement happen in the middle region between the Hudson Bay. major cities in this region include, Iqaluit and Ontario.
Economy of the Region
The Economy of the Canadian shield in the past was mostly just the fur trade. Today, with the wealth of raw materials, there are many materials to be dug.
The problem with all of the mining, it releases CO2 and sludge from the mines. Human influence the problem by releasing CO2 and destroying habitats.
Compare to Another Location
The Canadian Shield extends to Mexico were there is some of the oldest rock formation on earth. Most of the rock in this land is close to 4 Billion years old.
