Changing Populations

The Canadian population is getting much older but it is getting diverse too. Immigration will be the key factor for population increase in 2035 just as it has been since 1990. in 2013 the old population(seniors over 80) percentage was 4.1% but that is to change to 2035, the Inuit population is increasing rapidly, so is the Metis. When European settlers settled in northern america in the 90's , their Aboriginal population decreased enormously. Later they made a come back and now their population is increasing rapidly. It is growing faster than the rest of the Canadian population. in 1996 the aboriginal population was only 3.8% and within 10 years it went up to 5.4%. We should make sure that all of these people are well educated as they are most of Canada's young population. if the population is old(Canada's current population) expenses are higher, taxes are higher, job vacancy is lower, and the work force is lower. this causes a country to develop slowly.

Interaction in the Physical environment

Canada has a total of 7 vegetation zones(deciduous forests, mixed wood forests, boreal forest and taiga, grasslands, cordilleran vegetation, grasslands, tundra and west coast forests). landform regions of Canada- Innuitian mountains, Hudson bay lowlands, arctic lowlands, Western cordillera, Interior Plains, Canadian shield, St. Lawrence Lowlands, Appalachians. On the east coast of Canada, it is way colder than the west because the water currents are cold in the east. There is the cold and dry air mass over Canada which causes freezing and dry weather. There is a lot of precipitation in many parts of Canada because of oceans, lakes and rivers. Global warming is causing temperatures to increase and this may have an impact on various thing such as the vegetation zones and health of organisms and much more. For example many cordilleran vegetations may die out and tundras may turn into new cordilleran vegetation zones. Global warming is also causing the sea levels to rise. Scientist predict that there will be a flood in 2100.

Managing Canada's Resources and Industries

Most of our exports go to the U.S(74.5%), that is a huge percentage.the rest goes to countries like China, Japan, Mexico...This helps our economy a lot, but it looks like we are using it all up. Imagine what would happen to our future generation, put yourself in their place. Their ancestors left nothing for them, no alternate sources, just soil with no trees and no oil. This is a huge problem that we have to resolve. Canada's most value able resource-Water. Should we just export it all to them? We are nearly the world's 99% of freshwater supply. To use these resources sustainably, we have to think of different ways to develop our economy, only trade is not the option. We also have to think of different ways to use energy, oil is not the only form of energy. We could hire more scientists to find out new forms of cheap and renewable energy for example. If we don't manage to work it our, our future generation might provided that we left something for them. Now that we are not able to work it out, we should not try to develop our economy as this is having a negative impact on our future. Right now we should try to balance out thing and hope for better in the future

Liveable Communities

81% of the Canadians today live in urban sprawls. These urban areas have their advantages, but this is an issue too. Urban sprawl is not good for health as these areas are highly polluted and they may cause asthma. This areas are created and they destroy farm land. approximately 1.2m acres of farmland is lost every year due to this. also that deforestation takes place and destroys trees and wild life. these places also cause water pollution as the ground dosen't absorb the contaminated water and this water runs off into lake polluting them. We could resolve this issue in many different ways, such as creating boundaries between the lakes and the urban areas.expanding the urban areas so that pollution isn't accumulated in on small area. WE could also create new farmlands and start afforestation. This would help us sustain cities for the future. The government could force companies in to advertising less or increasing the amount on advertising about urban areas. This would probably control urban sprawl.
