Canada is a very sustainable community. Canada is a country with many job opportunities and a sustainable economy. Canada is also advancing more over time increasing the medical knowledge needed to be known to benefit this generation and generations further to come. The advancement of urbanization can be beneficial and be negative. Urbanization destroys natural resources, habitats and effects wildlife in the area. This is bad as losing resources with a growing population could be risky and result in major problems.

My Life in 2040

My life in 2040 will be very different from today. My parents came here from the Caribbean and they've told me how Canada has changed since they came here. Canada's population has grown since my parents immigrated here and will continue to grow. Canada being one of the most popular immigration countries will have more people immigrating to Canada in later years. With more people in Canada, more job opportunities will be created. More people working in Canada would also benefit the economy. There will also be more people located in Canada and that means more people paying taxes. The inflation of prices have also changed since my parents came to Canada. Currently in Canada, prices have risen over time. In 2040, prices will grow massively over the years. Canada will continue to grow and change with a higher population, immigration rate and more jobs.
